Ponder these questions after you listen to the message:  

  1. As you ponder the message, ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you where you could simplify this Christmas season. What is that area in your life? Once you simplify, what is a way you can replace the resources gained by simplicity, to join God in what He is doing?

  2. Who in your life could you give the gift of time this Christmas? Ask God to help you dream about how you might do that.

  3. What is at least one way you want to be different in giving a gift this year? Time or resources to the homeless, a charity, the church, the neighbor who lost their job, etc.

  4. Let us spend time this week thanking God for his unconditional love, grace, mercy, and guidance as we navigate through this Christmas season.
