Every year I try to do better at making smart purchase as I shop for the people I love. I am already planning to do most of my shopping through the Lutheran World Relief Catalog and to give each of my young adult children, (yes all 10!) a donation in their name to help a family in Peru through SEMBRANDO.
I want to encourage you to take a hard look at your own shopping plans and ask yourself “How can my faith and values show up in the gifts I give this season?” This is one easy way to share our response to the Greatest Commandment in Luke 10:27. Jesus said “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’“
