It’s Giving Genius

We have much to be thankful for. The expression of love through giving. What gifts are you grateful for?
Remember your first love?
As the day we celebrate the birth of Christ approaches we can be thankful for hope:
And everlasting love is what our Lord and Savior wants our hearts and minds to receive.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but will have everlasting life.
2 “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write,
‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: 2 “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; 3 and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. 4 Nevertheless I have thisagainst you, that you have left your first love. 5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.
We love Him because He first loved us.
1 John 4:19
