Giving;A Heart Check

IT’S CHRISTMAS!

The day we have all been waiting for is here …CHRISTMAS!
Apparently,I haven’t really been anxious about this day maybe because I never really do anything .I basically just do the usual activities like every other day and rest.
This period of Christmas here in Nigeria does not really feel like Christmas (do not really know why though). I remember posting on my status Yesterday night that “It does not feel like Christmas” and someone replied saying welcome to adulthood….LOL.

So back to what Christmas is all about. I remember seeing a quote by Thomas S. Monson which says “Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values”.
I must say that is a beautiful quote.
For a lot of people,Christmas is about killing chicken,eating ,partying and all but it does not just entail that.
Christmas is celebrating the birth of Jesus . In celebrating the birth of the one who died for us,we should be able to reflect who he is and God is love.
During this season, we are to show love to people around us and if you read my post on ”love as a sacrifice ”
https://www.moinspired.com/love-as-a-sacrifice/ , you will remember I said love is not just about saying “I love you”;it goes far beyond that. It is about SHOWING that you love and that involves sacrifice(in form of money,time,resources or anything) because even the bible says “For God so LOVED the world,that he GAVE his only begotten son…”( You can see even Jesus gave;he sacrificed.
If you have not read my post on “LOVE AS A SACRIFICE”,you should read it to understand better by clicking on the link below

So therefore,if Christmas is for you to celebrate the birth of Jesus,you should be able to reflect to people on earth who he is by showing love to people around you. Give to the poor, motherless babies home, family,friends,anyone and as you give God will reward you.
For a while now,I have been wanting to give to the poor but didn’t know how exactly to go about it but recently as I was thinking about it, a friend messaged about the exact thing and I was really excited to join in giving because there’s really nothing more exciting than seeing people who are suffering smile. It was a great thing indeed !

To everyone reading this, Wishing You All A Merry Christmas And A Prosperous New Year.Have a splendid season but please do not over eat,you do not want to get sick or destroy the house…LOL
