At this time of year money can be a big concern. How much can I spend on Christmas presents? How much should I spend? Should I charge anything or just buy what I can with the cash I have?
Then I found this quote from George Foreman:
"I've been poor with millions of dollars, and I've been rich when I was broke. Money never gave me any real joy, but with God in my heart I'm a rich man no matter what."
Joy at Christmas, then, (and all year long for that matter) doesn't come from things we buy and give. It comes from the love of God in our hearts that we give away to the others around us. And the best part of all is that God's love never diminishes. In fact, it seems to grow - the more we give it away, the more we receive!
