David Mathis over at Desiring God wrote a great article about how we regard money this time of year. It is worth the read just to challenge yourself on the idolatry of money. It is really hard to not spend money on things this time of year. But we are not called to spoil ourselves or our children. We are called to honor Christ. I do believe you can do that by giving gifts because that reflects the time when God gave the gift of himself but it is a fine line to not go overboard.
Not only are we on gift-expectation overload with Christmas, but then comes the year’s end and that one last chance for tax-deductible charitable giving. December bids us dig deeper in our wallets than any other season.
