For many of us, what we have liked for 2020 to be (a special year) turned out to be a chaotic and challenging one. Who among any of us expected a pandemic, tragic deaths and chaos in the streets to be the things that will mark this year? But all of these happened. And if you love God and you love being with his people, not being able to meet with your local church must have been saddening.
And now, thank God, things are beginning to open again. Maybe you are planning to meet each other, and you think it would be better to bring a gift in order to be an encouragement or comfort. Or maybe you are still stuck inside a home but you want to remind a Christian friend of the truths we need to remember especially during these times. Here are some of the gift ideas we think you would find very suitable for that purpose:
A Bible verse pillow. Aside from the fact that it adds comfort for rest and sleep, the beautifully printed words of a Bible verse can remind your beloved friend that God is the One who gives us true comfort and encouragement to us. Do you want a pillow that says, “Be still”? Or, “the joy of the LORD is your strength”? What about, “He restores my soul”?
And why not add physical and spiritual warmth with a throw blanket that displays timeless truths, like “Great is thy faithfulness,” or “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”?
An encouraging mug. Your friend can wake up and have coffee or tea with an additional reminder that in these troubled times, God is the only One we can lean on by drinking from a mug with biblical truth printed on it. Remind him or her to “trust in the Lord with all thine heart,” and make him say, “It is well with my soul.”
We hope that these recommendations have helped you think over what gifts you can give your Christian friend during these troubled times. We need to be always reminded, especially now, that we have a God who loves us and cares for us.
