1 Peter 2:1 Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, 2 as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, 3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

As we celebrate the greatest Gift that was ever given (Jesus), let’s honor that Gift by giving Him the gift of spiritual maturity.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could stop being hypocritical towards those who may not have it all together knowing, how we used to be? Wouldn’t it be great if we could be honest with ourselves and let go of that envious mindset we have towards our “friend”? How awesome would it be if we stop speaking evil (harsh, negative, or critical) altogether?

These are the gifts we can give to God and the gifts we can give to the world. Celebrate the Christmas season by giving your gift of spiritual maturity.
