Christmas is a little over a week away and perhaps there are still a few presents that you have to buy. Perhaps you are wondering if you picked the right gifts for the right people. Maybe you are wondering if you bought enough presents to give. Ask yourself, “Will more gifts make someone think more about Jesus, the reason we give gifts? Will your gift help them see Jesus in you?” Perhaps someone in your life would be happier with your time versus a gift. Do you have a special talent? Perhaps that is the gift you should share.
Whatever you do, be sure to give the gift of His presence. Likewise, make sure you are open to receiving the gift of His Presence.
You are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by all, shown to be a letter of Christ administered by us, written not in ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets that are hearts of flesh. 2 Cor. 3:2-3
Pray for families that they don’t get caught up in the gluttony of excessive gifts. Pray that they are able to be wholly present with each other when gathered so that His presence may be shared. Finally, pray for an abundance of grace to be poured out upon your family and every family during this beautiful Advent season.
Peace, Joy, and Love,
Help share His presence. Pass it on.
