What would happen if we spent our entire lives in the season of giving?

“Balance, peace, and joy are the fruit of a successful life. It starts with recognizing your talents and finding ways to serve others by using them.”

Thomas Kinkade

The real joy of Christmas is in the giving, not the getting, of presents. There is just nothing like finding the right gift for someone special. It is way more fun to give than it is to receive. 

What if we viewed the discovery and use of our skills, talents, and real purpose in life with the same focus and enthusiasm? What prevents us from investing our time in this way? Perhaps we have to change our perspective and make it not about unlocking our gifts for ourselves but instead on giving our gifts to others. Our entires lives should be spent in the “season of giving.”
