Good Morning!! Christmas is the time for giving. Giving to others like the Christ Child gave to us. But I have found a profound truth to the meaning of giving. It is impossible to give when we are not thankful. The enemy of this world wants nothing more then to twist the truth in our lives. He wants our thoughts to be on our lack of things, and not what God has truly and lovingly given us already. Before you can give, we must be thankful for everything and then our giving is with Joy. This Christmas let us count the gifts we have, not the ones we don’t have. We then can sing “Joy to the World.” Joy my friends. Love you.
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (New International Version)
