My husband told me the bank shut down our Visa card on Christmas eve morning and I had to wonder about the users across the world. What made them so desperate for flowers and tech toys to use stolen credit? Was it for them? Was it gifts for another? Either answer didn’t satisfy my curiosity.
The credit legitimately belonged to us, but I still didn’t feel any desperation to run out to use it no matter the season. Do we really need to have “stuff” so badly we are willing to go to jail or into debt for ourselves or to impress others? Christmas feels hijacked by frenzied shopping. It’s time to take it back for the celebration it truly is. Our greatest gift is the freedom purchased just for us.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
