    - We forget what we received as Christmas gifts, but never forget the gift of Jesus.
    - Jesus Christ is born, needs to be in the center of it all.
    - If Jesus is not in the center of our life, our life is off-centered.
    - Love motivates us to give the gift.
    - If there is no love in our giving, the gift means nothing.
