A Gospel-Centered Approach to Holiday Gifts | Ep. 204

A Gospel-Centered Approach to Holiday Gifts | Ep. 204

Happy holidays! Giving and receiving gifts around the holidays should bring us joy and build anticipation. And yet, we often become stressed or overwhelmed when it comes to giving and receiving gifts. In this episode, Shelby and Krystal discuss how we can have a gospel perspective even in something like exchanging gifts. When we consider our responses to others in both giving and receiving gifts, we have an opportunity to display the generosity of God and His grace toward others. We hope this episode helps us all to reframe our thinking around how we exchange gifts this Christmas.
