Are You Generous? Understanding a Theology of Gift-Giving

On Christmas day, people all over the world exchange presents. It is a cultural event full of fun memories for most people. I like many aspects of the cultural Christmas, but sadly, it loses its meaning for many folks because of its secularization. For them, Christmas is about the economy, presents, or family conflict, negating the idea of a generous gospel in most of the world, which is why it’s vital to talk about a theology of gift-giving. Perhaps a refresher on sacrifice will recalibrate our minds to the primary reason for the season.
