In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus Himself said: It is more Blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35
Jesus isn’t into Christmas, He’s into people. It’s easy to lose sight of that in the mist of the glitter. His gift is the ultimate one: eternal life.
Imagine spending our life savings on a present that’s rejected or ignored. That would almost certainly destroy the relationship. But that’s how we often treat Him. Yet despite either our rejecting Him outright or ignoring His blessings, He still loves us and gives us even more. The miracle of Christmas isn’t the baby in the manger; it’s the mercies He showers on us daily. We need to open our hearts wide and receive those thankfully!
