Journal on your own or discuss the following questions with a group of friends or your family:
- What is the real point of giving a gift? How is Jesus the best gift you have ever received?
- How generous are you with your time, treasures, and talents? Do you live as if it truly is more blessed to give than receive? How can you live this out more fully this Christmas season?
- Talk about a time when you blessed someone with extreme generosity or a time where you were blessed by someone else’s extreme generosity. Spend time in prayer asking God to help you become more generous by better comprehending the gift of love he has given us.
Consider Christmas shopping for someone who is not a part of your immediate family − like a patient in a nursing home or hospital, your mail carrier, your garbage collector, or a foster child.
