The Gift of Giving


Is what we do this time every year. We give so many things, but the greatest gift we could give, is Christ, our time, our selves, our tithes, our offerings, our homes, His Word and His love.

Giving goes way beyond a materialistic gift. Giving, is the giving up of self.

"If you give, you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over. Whatever measure you use in giving-large or small-it will be used to measure what is given back to you." Luke 6:38

God gave the ultimate gift of giving. He gave His Son!

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it." John 3:16
