Gift or Giver?

Psalm 109:30- “With my mouth I will greatly extol the Lord; in the great throng of worshipers I will praise him.”

 

In this season, if you are anything like me, you are spending quite a bit of time focusing on the gifts you would like to give special people in your life.

I ask myself, what would they like? What would make them smile? What would let them know they are special to me?

Then, there is the wrapping…the sparkle…the glitz… (This is my favorite part.) Again, it just adds to the “specialness” of the whole gift-giving process.

Each year, when I feel I am getting too “caught up” in the whole process, I turn to my Bible and read the Christmas Story, reminding myself that I must not worship the gifts.

You and I were made with a purpose…

We were made by God to worship HIM.

We were made to worship the Giver.
