Christmas – Probably the one time of the year well known for gift giving. Much time and effort will be put forth as we all participate in giving and receiving gifts. There can be a number of reasons we give a gift.

I saw this video the other day and it really got me to thinking……

What if we gave gifts for no other reason than to solely bless the recipient? In other words, what if it was not about exchanging gifts but just giving a gift?

What would it feel like?

Would it accomplish something that a gift giving does not accomplish on a regular basis?

If we gave a gift without expecting anything to  be given back to us. No expectations of receiving anything.

Perhaps it would look like this…..


Luke 6:38 tells us:

  • Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. (NIV)
  • Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full – pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back. (NLT)
  • Give away your life, you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back – given back with bonus and blessing. Giving not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity. (MSG)

“Generosity begets generosity.”

May that be said of each of our lives this Christmas.

Let’s beget generosity!
