Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. (Matthew 5:5)
As Christmas Day continues to approach, do you have that sinking feeling that you aren’t giving enough to the ones you love because your holiday budget has been met or already exceeded? Don’t worry, you aren’t the only one that feels this way. In fact, I believe that this is the leading reason why people are so stressed out this time of year.
The fact is, I am definitely not high on the totem pole when it comes to jobs or even bringing in the “so-called” big bucks. In fact, I have been feeling a little guilty lately because I simply can’t afford to buy gifts for each and every one of my friends and family.
As I sat praying about this today, God reminded me that I may not think much of myself due to lack of money or the ability to do more with my limited resources, but he sure doesn’t. How cool is that?
In fact, HE has already given us the greatest gift anyone can ever receive. That’s what we are really celebrating, right?
Thank you Father for reminding me of this today!
