Give time this Christmas

"You can make more money, but you can't make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time."

Powerful words, are they not? They make you sit up and think. But it also makes you realize that money or an expensive gift perhaps is not at all on the wish list of some people this Christmas. Perhaps they just want to have a bit of your time. Perhaps just sharing a few words over a cup of coffee or few minutes over the phone.

The above words are by Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life: What on earth am I here for? They make so much sense. Your time can be a wonderful Christmas gift to someone this year. Imagine the smile when you walk through that door!

It's almost Christmas. Don't delay, do it today. As Warren says, "The best use of life is love. The best expression of love is time. The best time to love is now."
