The first Christmas gift was given to the Child Jesus by the three wise men – Frankincense, myrrh, and gold. Notice the three gifts are very precious in those days. They may not be branded but are full of meaning.
In this season of giving, let us give some thought to the gifts we wish to pass on. We can give a gift which may inspire another person’s life – confidence, hope, faith, trust etc. The last thing people want is something we don’t want or simply give for the sake of giving. It doesn’t need to be expensive or branded.
I once received a heart-shaped rose quartz crystal, with a message of hope. I thought that was cool and thoughtful.
If we do such gifting, Christmas and New year will be a season of faith, hope, and love.
