The Christmas Season is upon us and is a time to celebrate the birth of our Savior. When it comes to buying gifts for loved ones, even the well-intended can find themselves succumbing to the pressure to go beyond their means in the purchasing of Christmas presents for others.
Is there a practical and God-honoring approach to buying presents? We submit that there is.

2. Knowing how much we can comfortably spend on gifts. (Luke 14:28)
3. Talking and praying together about a budget; then asking for God’s guidance in staying mindful of the reason we celebrate Christmas.
