What are your intentions in giving this Christmas?
Why are you giving this Christmas?
Do they truly appreciate your gifts or its all pretense?
Could it be you’re wasting your time and money and energy?
It’s the issue of the heart. Your why is very important.

Don’t spend if you can’t afford.
Don’t promise gifts at the expense of others.
Rebuke the entitlement spirit because you are not entitled to receive a gift. If you receive one be thankful for the blessing.
Refuse the pleasing spirit, you can please everyone else and yet you suffer the consequences alone.
My ex-boyfriend used to beat me if I disagreed with his spending habits (spending on what we did not have). He felt like he was in control but he was out of control.
Indeed God loves a cheerful giver.
Make concoctions from ingredients in your cupboard and give.
Invite someone for tea or coffee.
Send a message of gratitude.
Make a card.
By all means if you can afford please spoil away.
