What’s in a Gift?

By   •   December 23   •   Topics: ,


To Christians the joy of Christmas is not limited to His birth. It is built even more on the triumph of His death and resurrection—that gave meaning to His birth. The mysterious spirit of generosity which possesses us at Christmas is the afterglow of Calvary. The fact of the cross illuminates this day and hallows it. As we exchange our gifts, let us remember that they are symbolic of the unspeakable gift of God’s love.

I do not believe that Christians should be giving expensive gifts to each other. We should quietly give simple little gifts that are expressions of our love and devotion to the recipients. These gifts become symbolic of the gift of God’s love. How much money could be saved and invested in the Kingdom of God by thousands of Christian families every year if the true meaning of Christmas was observed.

Prayer for the day

Loving God, my heavenly Father, in Your gift of Jesus I see Your immeasurable love reaching out to all mankind. How I praise You and adore You!

    The gift from God of Jesus Christ to all of us, should be foremost at Christmas. It must remain preeminent, above all other “things”. Although giving gifts to each other, is a nice tradition . Those “things” are temporary and really don’t matter much in the big picture. We need to remember to thank God , as sincerely as possible, for the gift of his Holy Son .
