Gifts Without Cost

Some gifts you can give this Christmas are beyond monetary value:

  • Mend a quarrel, dismiss suspicion, tell someone, “I love you.”
  • Give something away—anonymously.
  • Forgive someone who has treated you wrong.
  • Turn away wrath with a soft answer.
  • Visit someone in a nursing home.
  • Apologize if you were wrong.
  • Be especially kind to someone with whom you work.
  • Give as God gave to you in Christ, without obligation, or announcement, or reservation, or hypocrisy.
