A cheap gift can be 5 cents or a million dollars. The difference between cheap and inexpensive is the thought. When gift giving is your love language, you know that it is the thought that counts! Something throughtless is not special. It is given and received out of duty or guilt. That's why Jesus said that the widow who gave her all (all two cents worth) gave much more than those who paraded their grand gifts in the Temple. It wasn't just about sacrifice, the gift was about Love. I think that is why so many people were disappointed with God's salvation. They wanted a grand king to rule on high, but God provided something much more special. He sent His Son. Not an expensive royal conquest, but a humble servant who lived, loved, died, and thankfully - conquered death! God's gift showed thought. He gave from His heart, not His wallet. And even though that gift is incalcuably valuable, it's real value is in what it means to us individually. So if you give gifts for Christmas let them show love and creativity, no matter what the price tag says.
ARTIST OF THE DAY
Go Fish is three guys bringing fun accapella fueled music to families and young children! Everything they do is geared towards introducing kids to Jesus through music, dance, visuals and fun.
“CS Lewis called it ‘chronological snobbery’—every generation thinks the previous generations were out of touch and we know better,” adds Jamie. “But so much in today’s world is man-centered. Many times even the Gospel becomes all about us, what’s in it for us. More than anything we’ve ever done, Kickin’ It Old School is definitely God-focused. For us it isn’t just about singing old songs, it is about teaching kids that the Truth is in the Bible.”Kickin’ It Old School is the latest installment of the biblical foundation for kids and families that Go Fish has been building since their 2003 children’s music debut, Splash. Leaving behind a career in Christian pop, the trio turned their attention to making music exclusively for kids after a series of sold-out concerts gave them a nudge toward an audience which might have been smaller in stature, but not in numbers.
