Gift Idea — Tangibles and Intangibles

Filed under: Materialist culture — admin @ 12:51 am

Too often we equate gifts with materials;
Too often we ignore the spirit of Christmas;
Too often we forget the meaning of giving;
Too often we are trapped in this sense of entitlement;
Too often we measure the depth of love or friendship by the amount we receive;
Too often we fix our eyes on what we want even though we don’t need;
Too often we choose to ignore those really in need;
Too often we forsake an opportunity to serve and to reach out;
Too often we overlook the long lasting value of the intangibles;
To the world of shallow, materialistic life, I say,
Enough for this madness of Christmas shopping
All in the name of celebrating the birth of Jesus!
