Piper on Christ-Centered Christmas Gift-Giving

I found another interesting Christmas-related “Ask Pastor John” response that resonated with me, as Crystal and I have recently been pondering, “How do we keep Christmas  gift-giving Christ-centered?”

Piper’s approach:

1. Sharing advent stories leading up to Christmas.

2. Trying not to be lavish (one “big” gift for each kid and some other little ones).

3. Explaining how our gift-giving flows out of appreciation for God’s gift of infinite worth.
