It is so important to remember that your giving is so much more than presents under the tree. The wise men brought precious gifts to the baby Jesus, but their greatest gift was that they traveled hundreds of miles for months and months...just to see Him. It is important to know that their gifts only became meaningful after they 'fell down, and worshiped Him.' Christmas is first about worship and praise. That means the carols you sing are more significant than the gifts you bring.
I love giving gifts. The fact that giving can make others happier and less sad, is such a joyful feeling. The Gospels share the incredible story about the ultimate gift God gave us—His Son, Jesus Christ. This is the reason for all the wonderful gifts we share at Christmas, but most important it allows us the privilege to introduce God's forgiveness and compassion to everyone around us.
