Giving, Not Given

By Darius Dadgar

My favorite thing about Christmas is not getting gifts from others, but giving gifts to others. Every year, I save a reasonable amount, and spend some of it for Christmas for my family. Oh, and the rest, I save for my family’s birthdays.

Keep in mind that Christmas is not about yourself. Jesus Christ said, “It is more blessed to give than receive”. Christ also said in Luke 6:38: “Give, and it will be given to you”. Even Christ agrees the season of gifting isn’t about getting gifts from others. Christmas is about giving.
