WEB Notes: Have you ever read in the Bible where it says to go into debt and give gifts to one another? Of course you have never read that in the Bible, it is simply not there. So why do we do it then? Tradition, our culture, but never do it because you think you are honoring Christ. You can honor Christ for free, by sitting down with your family and talking about Him, educating your children and just enjoying each other’s company.
For many people, giving and receiving gifts are one of the big parts of the holidays.
However, a new survey shows that 69 percent of Americans would skip exchanging gifts if their family and friends agreed to it.
The survey, conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of SunTrust Bank, also showed that 60 percent of those surveyed said they would spend more time with friends and family if they didn’t have to worry about buying or making gifts.
