“But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to make this freewill offering? For all things come from you, and of your own have we given you"
1 Chronicles 29:14
It’s Christmas time, like Thanksgiving when we should be thankful every day, we should give every day not just Christmas day. In 1st Chronicles 29:14 everything we have is because of the birth and death of Jesus Christ. I wonder sometimes about my giving. I am reminded by my wife giving is not just money sometimes, I like most people, think we have no talents to give. Our tithe can be a kind word to someone troubled. Sometimes just listening or just being there is a great gift. I think I don’t give enough but when I see grown-ups or children smile because of what I taught them on or about horses they are happy so I guess that’s a gift and a talent.
As we are getting ready to celebrate Jesus’ birth why don’t we think of forgiveness as a great gift to give and receive. A perfect way to honor God‘s greatest gift, Jesus Christ.
Merry Christmas to all and God bless.
