With Thanksgiving so recent it is fitting to remind ourselves in this time between Thanksgiving and Christmas to remain thankful for the things that truly matter. Our current society values gifts and “stuff” that comes in boxes and store shelves over what truly matters, time and relationships. Ask God this year how to make this Christmas season one you will always remember for all the right reasons.
Questions for further thought:
1. What practical way can you express your thankfulness this year?
2. How will your actions convey God's love for others?
Challenge: If God has laid something on your heart to change things up this year, please have the courage to follow through. Many times, it is tough to change family plans or go against the norm to better celebrate the holidays in a way that would better express God's love to others.
