This Christmas: Spend Less, Give More, Worship Fully

Several years ago, I discovered Advent Conspiracy. I was floored. This had always taken this approach to Christmas…something to which I was highly resented for by many *Christian* relatives. Materialism had replaced the meaning behind the gift of Christ…and making meaningful gifts became meaningless because they were not the most expensive thing on the list.
Let’s be honest, how many times have you just cringed at the thought of even buying a gift for someone? Now, logically, that should he the first indicator that the relationship is deeply lacking in some way.
This year, instead of struggling and stressing over Christmas and the obligatory gift-giving (which usually goes unused, is unwanted, or unneeded), consider a new way to approach the holiday.
I give you the Advent Conspiracy: Spend Less, Give More, Worship Fully. If you still don’t get it, watch the trailer here. If you do get it, watch the video anyway.
Celebrate as Jesus did. He gave of himself…relationally.
It began with worship. It begins with worship.
Now, imagine, if you spent less money by investing in meaningful relationships, taking that money and giving it away…to help the poor, hurting, needy, hungry…
Give the gift of clean water through Living Water, by cutting back on even one gift this year, and spending the money elsewhere.
Christ would surely give the same.
