Christmas Gift Suggestions

(Oren Arnold)

To your enemy - forgiveness

To your opponent - tolerance

To a friend - your heart

To a customer - service

To all - charity

To a child - a good example

To yourself - respect


                               HAS BEEN

                          BORN FOR US,

            A SON IS GIVEN

                      TO US;

               AUTHORITY RESTS

                UPON HIM AND

                  HE IS NAMED


Christmas Giving

(by Walter E. Isenhour)

As you think of giving presents

To your friends on Christmas Day,

Don't forget the poor and needy

That you meet along life's way.

Give them something that is helpful,

That will tell them of your love,

For such giving pleases Jesus

As He watches from above.

If you cannot give abundance,

Give a little in His name;

For a little given rightly,

With His blessings on the same,

May be bread upon the waters

You will find again sometime

Multiplied to loaves of blessing

That are wondrous and sublime.

Give and help to spread the Gospel

On the mission fields of Earth

Where the natives by the millions

Have not heard of Jesus' birth.

Give to causes that are worthy

Of your money with a prayer;

Give and help to share the burdens

That so many people bear.

Let the Christmas thought of giving

Go with you throughout the year,

Then your life will be a blessing

And you'll have the thrill of cheer;

For in making others happy,

You will get a great supply,

As our Lord who reigns in heaven

Will then bless you from on high.
