The best way to avoid buyer’s remorse is to know the person for whom you’re shopping.

You know their size or color preference or kind of gift that floats their boat.

That’s why shopping for God is so simple. We know what He wants for Christmas. Actually, there is someone somewhere in our lives who needs something that we can provide.

It could be a financial gift or a specific material item. If we’re broke, there’s always the treasure of offering to babysit, housesit, carpool, knit a sweater, mentor or whatever.

God knows about the manmade pressures of Christmas and that’s why He sent a manmade gift.

PORTAL TO HEAVEN: Visiting the needs of others is the contemporary version of bringing gifts to the manger.

He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you. but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God…All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I had been eager to do all along…If one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? Micah 6:8 NKJV, Galatians 2:10 NIV, James 2:16 NIV
