Afterwords: Great Gifts to Give and to Get



·        Great Teachers are a Gift from God. Thank God if you had a Great Teacher.

·        We give gifts at Christmas because we have been given the Greatest Gift of All.

·        Give others the gift of listening.

·        Make a habit of giving everyone the gift of encouragement every day.

·        Christmas is not about decorations – food – gifts – lights – parties – Santa; Christmas is about the Birth of Christ.

·        Offer the gift that everyone can give; the gift that costs much more than our money and is more powerful than our energy, give the gift of our very presence.


·        Of all the gifts God gives us, He gave us the Greatest One, He gave Himself to us.
 
    ·        God graciously and generously gives us His gifts.

·        Jesus is the greatest gift ever given to the world.
