Pierce my heart to give

2 Corinthians 9:7: “Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart . . . for God loves a cheerful giver.”

I love the Christmas season! I love driving around to look at the Christmas lights, ice skating at our local park, baking dozens of cookies, enjoying festive decorations and trees in almost every home I visit, and I particularly enjoy coming home to my own cozy home and sitting by the fireplace with a cup of hot tea.

We all have different things we love about the holidays, and favorite traditions we look forward to each year. This year, let’s start the tradition of giving. There are so many people in need, people who can’t afford trees, presents, or Christmas meals. Let’s cheerfully give some of what we have to someone in need, as we’re told to do in 2 Corinthians 9:7.

The above verse about giving is specifically talking about regularly giving money to the church, but it can definitely apply to how we’re to give every day; cheerfully, and as we’ve decided in our hearts.
