Psalm 50:12“If I were hungry, I would not tell you, for the world and all that is in it is mine.

What does God want for Christmas?

In my family we hint to one another what we would like to find under the tree. Then we call various parents and ask, “What would my nephew like for Christmas?”

Like many families, we also do some year-end giving to various organizations we like to support. One memorable Christmas, my wife and I figured out how much we would give then laid that much in play money on the table and our children helped us divide it between the regional food bank, an international aid agency, the American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, and the local animal shelter. I enjoyed that gift as much as the sled I received when I was about 8-years old, which still hangs on our garage wall.

What will you give God this Christmas?
