My sentiments exactly!
Yeah, it's tough to strike a fine balance. I'm sure we all give gifts and wish to continue, but the number and expense seems to be a point of pride with some.
Now that just makes me want to *debate*, as a person whose love language is gift giving!
Yeah, AP, I'd have to say I see both sides of that coin. I don't necessarily think gift giving goes against His teachings. But, materialism probably does.
There's nothing wrong with gift giving, but there's something wrong with excess.
Hmmm... buying and giving gifts don't necessarily have to be tied at the hip, do they? Buy Nothing Christmas has some great ideas for no cost gift giving (like a babysitting gift certificate!). Last year we got gift certificate from my sister for a free house cleaning - top to bottom!
