Christmas Inspirational Thoughts

Christmas Inspirational Thoughts. Here are my thoughts, and I invite you to share yours.

What is the most precious gift you can give to another? Perhaps an expensive diamond juwel? A gorgeous car? A house? A playstation? When we are thinking of giving something, we usually think of material stuff.

Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up and we are going to think about how to be thankful and what we can give to eachother.

The shop owners are already making the windows beautiful and shiny. The children are going through the advertising leaflets, cutting out the things they want. They are totally not thinking of what they can give. The lives of our children is primarily about to have, to have,  to have.

What is wrong with our educational system?

As Francis of Assisi said:“For it is in giving that we receive.”

Francis of Assisi. Teach the gosple all times, and if necessary use words

Isn’t it the highest time we are going to teach our children what this sentence is all about?

“Whatever it is you are really desiring, give it away. If it’s companionship, give it to someone else, and just listen to them and be there. If it’s money, give it to someone who is less fortunate. If it’s encouragement, give it to others. If it’s friendship, become the best friend you can be to others. If it’s time, serve others with your time. You will be amazed to see how much more of everything you have when you are willing to freely give.”

When you want to have more of something, regardless of what, you have to give it to another freely and with love. And it comes to you in large quantities.

Jesus said: “Ask and you will be given”. (Matt. 7:7-12)

Christmas Inspirational Thoughts
Live as Jesus

Matthew 22:36
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

He said to him, “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’  This is the greatest and first commandment.   And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

We are sitting on a richness, trying to keep it all for ourselves, not knowing what will happen if we share freely.

We have so much gifts to give. We can give love, compassion, attention, time, help, care, money, material, warmth, education, and so on.

We just have to open up to the world and other human beings. See around us and notice what is needed.

We can also withdraw ourselves and put ourselves on a narrow platform and choose not to.

What will be the right way to teach your children? To sit on their platform, or to look around and share their gifts?

How do you teach your children this way of life, you will ask?

Well that is the most simple question you can ask me.

Just live it! Be their example!

The most precious gift we can give to every human being is to let them know they are worth to exist.

We can act!

And we can let them know, by taking care of their basic needs. To provide a shelter, food, clean drinking water, medical treatment, education and proper clothing for all human beings.

    Thanks for spreading such a wonderful thoughts.

  2. Hi Loes,

    Wow! Another great and thought provoking article you have written.

    My wife and I have taught our children, from an early age, to save at least 10% of all money they receive (including as a gift from someone for their birthday etc) to be able to give to a cause they see as worthy.

    I love how you present some of the many ways of giving. So many people seem to think they can not give until they have enough money to do so.
    Time is definitely the most precious gift we can give anyone and it can be given in so many ways, from visiting an aged person to reading a child a story.

    Thanks again Loes,.

    Blessings Be,

    – Rich
