The True Importance Of Gift Giving by Alan Tutt http://www.KeysToPowerProsperity.com
Although many people balk at commercialization that has taken place around Christmas, it is important for us to realize prosperous results of gift giving.
As much as anyone, I wish that true meaning of Christmas was advertised as much as "Incredible Savings - This Week Only" deals of season. But even though shopkeepers depend on Christmas gift-giving to generate a profit for whole year, it is up to us to maintain our focus upon what is truly important.
Before I start, however, I want to mention that benefits of gift-giving are not limited to only those who follow Christian faith, nor are they limited to Christmas season. In our society, we are much more familiar with tradition of gift-giving as it applies to holiday season, but a quick review of other cultures will find other examples.
One of primary benefits of gift giving is good feeling you get when you do something good for someone special. There's a magical moment when you watch recipient of gift unwrap package and discover treasure that you've wisely chosen for them. When their eyes widen as they realize what you have done to demonstrate their importance in your life, your spirit responds with a warm glow that builds from inside out, and you have confirmation that you have created a little more prosperity in world.
Some people find that they don't experience this warm glow from their inner spirit. In fact, some people experience a feeling of loss or impoverishment. Those people will find that their mental focus is on cost of gift and not on blessings that it has created for other person. The attitude in which a gift is given is actually much more important than gift itself.
