God is a giver of gifts. Every good and perfect gift comes from Him. (see James 1:17). And the most precious gift ever given, a gift with value that can never be calculated, is the gift He gave us when He gave us His own dear Son. It was as if He gave all of heaven for our rescue.
It is His nature to give; that is how He shows His love. Whenever we give a good gift, we are being like Him. Christmas reminds us of that.
The act of giving gifts to others has the amazing benefit of joy for the giver. It’s amazing how that works! It works even with the gift of a smile. Have you ever noticed someone’s eyes light up when you flash them a big smile? That will make you feel warm inside.
Experience the JOY!
