Make EVERY DAY Christmas for Someone Else!

The world has encouraged people to expend FAR TOO MUCH hype, superstition, and selfishness on the notion of what Christmas should be about. I encourage everyone to go back to the Bible and learn the truth about it and what it really means; what true gifts and giving are really all about. For an overview of the Nativity story, and the kind of giving that pleases God, read the first few chapters of Luke and John (and by all means, don't stop there, for the Bible is laden with examples of true giving that pleases God.)

Although the event in this video has nothing to do with the worldly notion of Christmas, yet it conveys a taste of the selfless spirit of what giving should mean to us at Christmas and every day of every year, a principle to which Christ Jesus shall hold all people accountable, since He is God's greatest gift to all people for all time.

Always give without grumbling or ever expecting anything in return. Give even when no one will ever know that you are the one who has provided the gift. Give to please God, as you seek His will about what to do. Do not give to please yourself, nor to win the approval of  any person. God bless you as you seek Him through His Word. You will learn much about good and evil by the way that you give.
