May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:5-6)
Our celebration this week will include in most cases the exchange of gifts. Step back. Don’t look upon this as a chore or expectation. Ask yourself if you are giving out of love. Put yourself into the exchange just as your salvation is given with the mercy and love of the Lord.
