Last year my friend Lindsay from Because He Gave was inspired by the book 101 Simple & Thoughtful Ways to Give This Christmas Away by Matthew West.

Inspiration led to her blog & a her blog took us on a journey into re-discovering the true meaning of Christmas.

We are so bombarded this time of year with the 'I want!' attitude that it is so easy to lose sight of what this season is really about. We have a God who gave His son to us over 2000 years ago. We have a Son who gave His life so that we can live forever with Him. With such love given to us, should we not give it away also?
A beautiful quote from my friend Lindsay (o:

Somewhere along the way we have lost the true meaning behind Christmas. We got caught up in the commercialization of Christmas & we forget the true spirit. Our hearts have become hard.

For the next three months let us soften our hearts, let's give Christmas away.

There are many beautiful ideas in this book. I pray that giving will become easy & I pray that we incorporate the spirit of giving into our lives all year round (o:


101 Simple & Thoughtful Ways To Give This Christmas Away by Matthew West was inspired by the Matthew West song from Veggie Tales Saint Nicholas.

"Give This Christmas Away"
What if I told you, you have the power To give someone hope far beyond their wildest dreams. What if I told you, it's right there in your hands, in your hands.
It's hard to imagine how something so small
Could make all of the difference, tear down the tallest wall.
What if December looked different this year?

What if we all just give Christmas away
If there's love in your heart, don't let it stay there.
Give this Christmas away
And your life will be changed by the gift you receive,
when you give this Christmas away.

It's feeding the hungry, serving the poor,
It's telling the orphan, You're not forgotten anymore.
It's doing what love does even when no one's watching you.
For God so loved the world that He gave us all His Son,
So we could be in his hands, his feet, his love ... his love.

What if we all just give Christmas away
If there's love in your heart, don't let it stay there.
Give this Christmas away
And your life will be changed by the gift you receive,
when you give this Christmas away.

For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’
Deuteronomy 15:11
