The Best Christmas Gift

3 comments

Short on money this year for all those Christmas presents you need to buy? Good news: You don’t need it and you can still give the best Christmas gift ever.

We spend over $450 Billion on Christmas gifts each year. Buying people gifts has become a matter of formality with less and less meaning. This year, try spending less money and more time. More time on making something thoughtful. Time on relationships. Time preparing for Christmas (i.e. embracing Advent). Time in real thanksgiving and worship.

Here’s a great video to inspire you:

Advent Conspiracy

Imagine what we could do if we didn’t spend so much on ourselves and on buying things we really don’t need?

What a beautiful concept and a great video about how to live it! Thank you so much for sharing this. I’m definitely going to pass it along and also share this with my blog readers. God bless you and your family this Advent season as you rejoice in the love of the Lord and the time you spend together!
