2017-12-22 - Gifts for God
Originally Published 2011-12-02
It's that time of year where for many of us we count the shopping days left until Christmas. We will buy or make gifts for many people. This year I want to do something different. This year I want to give more gifts to Jesus than to anyone else on my gift. Now I won't have anything wrapped under the tree for him but I am planning on giving as he instructed we could.
There are many organizations that do this type of work and can use extra money or extra volunteers at this time of the year. Find them and work with them to give to Jesus. If you don't have money you can always give of your time and help at a shelter, a soup kitchen, or even find an elderly person in your church and help them around their house. Doing these things will help you realize how blessed you truly are and you may find yourself wanting to give even more. You will also discover that as you help make other people happy you will become happier yourself.
