Christmas Gifts

Suggestions from Oren Arnold, late journalist and novelist.

“To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.” That’s quite a gift list, isn’t it? As we think through these days until Christmas itself, these intangible gifts are surely far more important than glittery, wrapped packages, no matter the monetary value.

Wisdom: “My gifts are better than gold, even the purest gold, my wages better than sterling silver!” (Proverbs 8:18)
