What Are You Giving God For Christmas?~ A Spritual Article by Emily Ciszewski

I was trying really hard to think up something to write for my spiritual article this month! I often find my best work comes from my journal entries and little lists I make all the time! (A first-born trait!)

Here is what came to mind the other day; If God is the biggest thing in my life - how am I showing it? I thought of all the important people in my life - familyand friends - and then about my dream boyfriend - and that is what got me thinking! If I had a boyfriend, I would shower him with affection! Seriously - I love doing things for people - giving them gifts, cooking for them, visiting them without telling them beforehand - all that. This got me making a list of all the things I'll want to do for my boyfriend or fiance.

- Make him meals
- Read to him
- Visit him
- Write letters to him
- Sing to him (I can't sing...oh well!)
- Do special little things for him - like chores and yard work

- Ect. Ect. Ect.! :)


Then I thought to myself, if this is how I would treat my boyfriend, God is really missing out! I've decided what to give God this Christmas - all that on the list! God came to earth and gave me the bestest gift ever! His Son came to DIE for me! DIE FOR ME! He died so that me - little Em Ciszewski - could go to Heaven! Yes - I've given Him my heart - or have I? How many times have I given him a simple thing on that list just because I love him? He who has blessed me so much! Just for your info - if you have money in your wallet and money in the bank - you are one of the top richest 8% in the world! That is a fact! So, again - what are you getting God for Christmas?

"The Kind will reply, "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."
Matt. 25:40


My challenge is this; to find one person each to perform these good deeds to - someone to make a meal for, to read to, to visit and so on. I want you to make your own list. Make your own list and think hard for people to serve!

You know the Christmas story. You know the cliche articles on the wise men's gifts - I want to give you some cud to chew on (nice mental image, huh) - how many Christmas gifts have you given Christ in your life time?

I hope I lose count!

Merry Christmas all!

Love,
 Emily
