Never underestimate the Power of a Gift

2 Corinthians 8:12

For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what one does not have.

In this season that is so commercialized to entice you to spend lots of money in hopes to put the biggest smile on someone’s face, we must remember that the biggest gift we can give someone is our love.

Galatians 5:14

For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
If we love then it’s not going to matter the size of the gift but that it was given in love.
We can tend to get financially in debt and stressed out with all the hype and that is not how we should feel.

2 Corinthians 9:7 

Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Hebrews 13:16 

Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

So step back and evaluate our gifts.  And always remember that a gift may not have any monetary value at all but could have the biggest impact on the receiver.
