Compassion, not consumption

Christ tends to get overlooked at Christmas. Let’s be honest. December comes and you think, “OK, this is the year.” This time you’ll swear you’ll slow down and take it all in. Make the most with family. Help the needy. Zero in on what it really means to be a Christ follower during this holy season.

I found these lines, from AdventConspiracy.org, to be very compelling. This year, I’m thinking about how I can truly give during this season. I want to give meaningful gifts. Maybe they aren’t super practical, but they are gifts that send a message.
