A Hug for Christmas

A hug is a great gift—one size fits all, and it’s easy to exchange. (From a Norman Rockwell calendar)

As you’re planning your Christmas gifts (just a week from today), you probably realize pretty quickly, that you can’t afford to give gifts to everyone you’d like to. But Rockwell’s calendar comment suggests a worthy idea. Be sure to express your affection and appreciation for your friends with a warm embrace and words of encouragement and hope.

Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. (Romans 12:10)
