Guest Post By Coach Mike Fenton
As we grow, the things that we are grateful for continually change, for instance when we were children one of the greatest gift of all was the new sled, or doll; whatever Santa left for us under the tree.
Then as we got older watching the innocence of Christmas through the eyes of our children was the greatest gift of all. There was/is nothing like watching a child wake-up on Christmas day to the wonder of Christmas.
Then we reach a point in life when we learn and accept the greatest gift of all was given to us by the Lord Jesus Christ and the sacrifice He made on the cross, and through that sacrifice we were given the gift of eternal life.
We should all think about giving during this blessed time of the year as we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. No matter how big or small the gift may be, we should think about what is written in Proverbs 18:16 which say “A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great”.
Remember each of us is a gift in our own way and we all have something special to offer others. It is not how much we have to give, it is that we give. In Luke 21:3-5 it reads “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”
We need not concern ourselves about giving and being without for when we have faith we will never be without, the Lord SHALL provide. There are so many opportunities to give that cost us nothing but our time such as doing and being there for others. Volunteering helps others while at the same time provides us with the good feeling we get from helping others. You are a gift that is unique in many ways. Use your God given abilities to make a better life for someone else and enjoy the gift of giving.
