Serving While Saving’s Christmas Season Challenge

image0011

The holiday season is fast approaching….faster than I can get myself ready for it. I was talking with a friend of mine last night about Christmas & our favorite things about the season {the smells, the FOOD, the parties, the family time, etc} and the burdens that many feel because they just can’t afford to take part in the mainstream gift giving this year because of financial hard times. I’ll be honest, we are having to get creative this year at our house and I’m sure you and yours are having to do the same. But, last night we got to talking about the TRUE meaning of Christmas. Christmas is about giving and helping others……God gave us the ULTIMATE gift 2000+ years ago in the form of a child born in a manager….. what a better way to HONOR the Lord and thank Him for His gift than by giving and helping others this season. I challenge you to get creative & seek the Lord and ask Him what ways that you and your family can serve others this season. Don’t look in your checking account and say ‘well, there isn’t enough’….. giving doesn’t have to be about money or gifts……. You can give your time, services, and love >>> the possibilities are endless! Are you up for the challenge?

“For God so loved the world that He GAVE His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

I want to hear your stories…..how have you served others in the past over the holiday season or how do you plan to serve this year?  Also, what are some creative ways you give to others?  Email me at servingwhilesaving@gmail.com
