It starts with Jesus. It ends with Jesus. This is the holistic approach God had in mind for Christmas. It’s a season where we are called to put down our burdens and lift a song up to our God.
Spending Less isn’t a call to stop giving gifts; it’s a call to stop spending money on gifts we won’t remember in less than a year. By spending wisely on gifts we free ourselves from the anxiety associated with debt so we can take in the season with a full heart.
GIVE MORE is not about giving more charity, money, or gifts. It’s about giving the way God gave on the first Christmas—it’s about giving yourself. Give PRESENCE rather than just PRESENTS.
LOVE ALL is a simple commitment to commit some portion of the money you save by spending less to the kind of birthday gift Jesus asked for—something for the thirsty, hungry, imprisoned, sick, and lonely.
