                   "CHRISTMAS OR GIFTMAS''

Christmas Season is here! Do you think of this season as "GIFTmas" or "CHRISTmas? " It is both because God sent his very best gift-His Son, Jesus Christ as a Gift to All people. A few years ago, the estimated national average of spending per household was $830 for Christmas gifts. Have you ever received a gift that was way too expensive or that you did not think you deserved? Therefore, you did not accept it. The Apostle Paul tells us, "But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent/ orth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law," Galatians 4:4 NKJV. John writes, "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:17 NKJV "Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water." John 4:10. It is okay to give gifts because God gave us a Gift, His Son, who is and can be "Our Living Water." I urge you to give a Gift to an underserving person, or someone who is not on your "List." You never know what this gift will do for someone; maybe they will find the Gift of Living Water of Jesus through the small gift you give.
