In Dickens famous book, A Christmas Carol, fictional character Jacob Marley makes the following statement:

“I wear the chain I forged in life! I made it link by link and yard by yard! I gartered it on of my own free will and by my own free will, I wore it!”

Ever feel like you are a stuck in the chains of greed?

Admittedly, there are times when we all find ourselves bogged down in our desires. But when our chains are forged by our own bad decisions, greed, and selfishness, we have no one to blame but the one in the mirror.

Christmas is a good time to go counter-cultural and look for an opportunity to be a giver. Generosity is the best way I know of to break the chains.

Scrooge learned the lesson the hard way. I hope you don’t have to.
