Can you imagine going through all of the work of finding the right gift, paying your hard-earned money for it, wrapping it up, delivering it to the recipient, and then watching them set it aside unopened?!
Or how about the one who opens the gift, but doesn’t show any gratitude at all?!
Or the one who says a sincere “Thank you!” but then puts the gift on the shelf and never touches it again?!
Christmas is the time we think about the greatest gift of all—God’s gift of His only Son. But this isn’t the only gift God gives. In fact, He is a lavish Gift Giver. So the key questions are:
- Are you opening His gifts to you?
- Are you showing Him how grateful you are for His gifts?
- Are you using His gifts?
I’m starting a brand new series this Sunday, and going all the way until Christmas morning, looking at God’s Gifts. We’ll see what the Bible says about these gifts, including how to show our gratitude, and how to use them in a way that honors the Gift Giver.
I hope you can join us!
