The Christmas holidays are here upon us, and the world around us is filled with the noble notions of gift-giving. “What am I going to get my spouse?” “Will my kids like this gift?” “What can I do for my boss and co-workers?” Giving gifts is a godly behavior, and we should all remember that our Lord said it is better to give than to receive (Acts 20:35). It is good to rejoice in giving!
But in all of our giving, did we remember to put God on our list? Did we remember to present ourselves to God as a living sacrifice (Rom. 12:1)? Did we think to walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him (Col. 1:10)? Did we remember to wrap up a huge present of thankfulness for salvation through Christ Jesus (Col. 1:12)?
In all the hubbub and scrambling to find the perfect present for those we love, did you remember to put the Lord on your list? Let’s remember Him today and every day for His indescribable gift (2 Cor. 9:15)!
