Never miss a thing. Make Yahoo your homepage.
We all know the routine. Shop til’ you drop… sales everywhere. Based on the friendships you have cultivated your list of people to give to is probably longer. You don’t have the funds? You risk the chance of losing a friend over a sweater.
Ughhhh! The holidays. There is one thing that needs to be remembered… the reason. Not just the “reason for the season” but the reason why you are able to live life everyday. His name is Jesus. It’s funny how we take the holidays and turn it around into a holiday that only profits us. It’s here to make us happy. We build up our Christmas savings account but what about building the Kingdom?
The title of this post is “Whose getting a gift?” I’m sure family and friends will receive from you. What are you giving God? I can hear you now. “How can I give God anything? He owns it all. I have nothing to give him.”
Someone else had that same sentiment and wrote it in a song about the birth of Christ. We call him “the little drummer boy”. He made a statement that really catches my spirit this year:
Little Baby, pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum
That’s fit to give the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,
