Because He Gave, We Give

Jesus was a true leader, leading in both word and deed. He walked the talk. What an example! He left Heaven and all it holds to take on a robe of flesh. He left all the splendor, the beauty, the constant praise, and the ever-present fellowship with His Father in exchange for poverty. He gave of His time on Earth to show compassion. He gave of His strength to lift the weak. He gave love to the unlovable. And after all of that, He gave His very life for sinful man. He truly gave His all!
Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: Galatians 1:4
Following His example, we give.
We give thanks:
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. I Thessalonians 5:18
O Give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people. Psalm 105:1
Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever. Psalm 106:1
We give to others:
Let all your things be done with charity. I Corinthians 16:14
During this holiday season and at all other times, may the Lord help us to follow His example by giving thanks for what we have and giving to those who have not.
