One thing that COVID has done is divide people. According to a recent poll by CoinStar, one in eight people stated that they will not be buying Christmas presents for family and friend who disagree with their position on COVID.
The disagreements can range from lockdowns, to masks, to the seriousness of COVID to vaccinations.
We can get in arguments over COVID, and sometimes they get heated. The Apostle Paul says, it is not a sin to get angry, but warns that we should not let the sun go down on your anger (Ephesians 4:26).
In other words, we need to forgive, and we need to do it quickly.
And if you are finding it hard to forgive, one way of dealing with that broken relationship may involve the simple act of giving a gift, even at Christmas.
Study Finds stated the poll also revealed that 39% of people say they will be spending less money on Christmas this year, because money is tight. And if you are struggling with what type of gift to give, the poll found that 68% prefer money.
