To Give Or Not to Give…

FB_IMG_1572151409144.jpg

I’ve heard people debate whether gift giving is celebrating Christmas properly or not. Is it Christ like or is it not honoring Christ? I can honestly see both sides. In the end though, this is how I feel….

I don’t believe that’s how God intended we celebrate His son’s coming into the world, however, I do think it is Christ like to give to others. I think when we put others ahead of ourselves and give to others, we’re continuing His legacy of love.

I also don’t think we need to go overboard though, shouldn’t have to fight crowds, spend so much we’re in debt, or feel the need to impress anyone. We could give simply and it would still be wonderful, if given from a place of love and light in our souls.

Whether or not you put up a tree, lights, and other decor doesn’t dictate whether you celebrate the Christ in Christmas or not. Honestly, neither does going to church on Christmas Eve. A church goer does not a Christian make. How you dress, what you give or if you don’t, where you go, etc doesn’t truly matter at the end of the day either. In my soul, what I think matters is how you treat others and the love you give, Christian or not.

I will not put another down for feeling or celebrating differently. All I ask is show me kindness, respect, and love and I’ll do the same. I will not hide my love for Jesus and I’ll gladly share His story with anyone willing to listen and His love with everyone I can, but I won’t berate you if you don’t share the same feelings or beliefs. I’m going to say Merry Christmas to all. If you say something else, like Happy Holidays or perhaps nothing at all, that’s fine. Be true to your heart and I’ll be true to mine. ❤💚
