Christmas is meant to be about celebrating our Messiah’s birth. Gifts are a large part of our celebrations and we want operate wisdom when giving whilst still keeping Jesus at the centre of our Christmas. As Christmas is around the corner, we have some ideas to help avoid overspending.
Are you drowning in debt? Do you fear opening your post, or have you even stopped opening certain envelopes? Are you behind with your payments and receiving demands? Is your account being charged with late payment fees? Is your expenditure greater than your income? Do you long for the day when your debts will be repaid and you will have peace of mind?
It is rightly said that failing to plan is planning to fail. I always see God as the ultimate planner, and the Bible is replete with His plans for man. He has set clear goals for man, his redemption and his life on this earth and in eternity. He has provided us with what we need to live and reproduce. God has had a plan for each of us from the beginning.
If you have children, God has given you a tremendous opportunity and responsibility to nurture them and allow Him to use you to shape and mould them into all God desires for them.
