This Christmas, most of us will get something from a store, wrap it up, put it under a tree and give it to someone. When they open it (whether they actually like the gift or not), they’ll smile and talk about how much they’ve been wanting what we just gave them.
Many of us will buy people gifts and get gifts simply because we expect we’ll get one from the same person. No one ever wants to be the dude/dudet that got a present, but didn’t give one.
Presents are fine.
Gifts are fine.
Santa is fine (but fat).
What I want to know is…
If you could get anything for Christmas this year that can’t be bought in a store, what would it be? (a job, healing, restored relationship, etc…)
