Is All Your Shopping Done--Better Check Your List!

I had a poem that I've looked all over for and can't find, but the gist of it goes like this:

Don't forget the Most important person this year-Is Jesus even on your list? Turn up your volume and check out this link: What Would Jesus Want For Christmas?

Is Jesus on your list this year? What will you give Him for Christmas, after all, it is His birthday we are celebrating. Here are some suggestions:

1) The most important thing we can give Jesus is our love and accept His sacrifice on the cross for us, receiving forgiveness for our sins. Once we've received Jesus as our personal Savior, then He wants us to love others.

2) I always make sure I give an additional Christmas offering to Jesus. Whatever your most expensive gift is, give that amount for Jesus too since He is the most important person on your list.

3) Give to a charity that shows the Love of Jesus to others. Here are a few that I can think of:
The Jesus Film Project
Compassion International
Children International
City Mission
Covenant House
Boys Town
World Vision
Local Food Pantries
Cleveland Pregnancy Center
The Salvation Army
Missions through your own church
Samaritan's Purse

Can you think of any other suggestions of what Jesus would want for Christmas?
