The Giver of the Gift

God is the Giver of the gift. The capability of the donor usually gauges the value of the gift. We don’t usually think of a person as a gift, but actually interpersonal relationships are the most valued and cherished gifts of all. But the Bible teaches that God gave a Person as a gift to every one of us, and that Person is Jesus Christ. One day a six-year-old boy in a southern town answered a knock at the door.

It was his father, just returned from Southeast Asia. He didn’t ask, “Daddy, what did you bring me?” He threw his arms around his father’s neck and said, “Oh, Daddy, this is the best Christmas present I’ve ever had!”

Prayer for the day

Your costly gift of Jesus, Father, fills all the longings and desires of my heart.

    Thank you for this statement , it reminds me of all the blessing and people God has placed in our lives. We all need to love each other enough that we would be willing to die to save each other. Not something that would be easy. I pray each day that I never forget the love he gave and the price he paid so that we could know and love our Heavenly Father . Not only at Christmas but all year long. I know that I am loved.
