You may be sitting there asking yourself on this Christmas Eve, “What do I have to give?” It’s quite simple, really, as the biggest treasures cannot be found on the shelves. They are not stocked in any store, nor can they be found with a few clicks of your mouse on the internet. Instead, they are found deep within the chambers of our hearts.
What do you have to give?
How about love, deep love. A lasting love, a devoted and dedicated love. A true love. A love that will not betray, nor deceive, nor lie. A love that will be honest and loyal.
Consider truth. Giving the gift of honesty by being a man or woman of your word. A person of integrity. One with good morals and values. An upstanding citizen, but even more importantly, the kind of person that you would want your daughters to marry. One that would protect their little hearts and never ever do anything in the world to break them. One that would shelter and love through all the years, never ever forsaking them for another.
Faithfulness. Deep within your being, right to the very core … having your heart beat with love for only one person on this earth – the one you married.
Making your loved ones feel treasured and cherished. Important and valued. Heard and appreciated. Validated. Connected and bonded together. Just the two of you, heart to heart, united as one as God intended.
You have so much to offer and so much to give not just this holiday season but every day.
Drop to your knees and beg for forgiveness if you have not been any of the above or a select few of the before mentioned this year or in the past several years. You can turn from your wicked ways right here, right now. You can be a person of good character. You can rewrite who you are starting today. You have it in you to make a lasting change. Turn from any sin that you have held on to in your life. Let go of any lies you’ve been telling and replace it with truth. Leave the deceitful, lustful ways of the past and be more. Be a man or woman of God!
Tomorrow is the day we celebrate when Jesus came to this world, to save the world all those years ago! As a little tiny baby lying in a manger, He was our truth and life. He was our future, our forgiveness, our Savior. Jesus can still save you right here, right now – today – where you sit reading this – if you only allow Him into your heart.
Jesus came to save the world!
Turn all of your sins and darkness over to Him. Run into His outstretched arms and sin no more! Turn away from that life you were living. You have a lot of making up to do for lost time. To the loved ones you took so much from in years past due to your behavior, the sin you had in your life, the way you mistreated them and took them for granted. Start today repairing things in your life, in your marriage, in your family.
What do you have to give?
The gift of renewal; a fresh start with true love and devotion to your one and only on this earth and to God above in Heaven.
Give the gift that will be treasured all the days of your loved ones’ lives.
Give them the best that you can be from here on out. Give them love like they’ve never experienced before. Give them truth and honesty. Give them the gift of ONLY having eyes for them. Give them a bright future ahead for the family with love, devotion, truth, dedication, loyalty, and faithfulness.
That’s what you have to give.
