Christmas Gifts

This morning I spent quite a bit of time wrapping Christmas presents.   All the while thinking, “It takes so much time to wrap these gifts and make them look nice, only to have them be torn apart in seconds!”   Oh well, I guess that’s part of the fun of it!  🙂

It also got me thinking of gifts that I’ve gotten in the past.  Some special, and some unique, but the best one of all was God’s gift to me on Christmas Day many years ago.   This gift from God has 3 qualities that makes it extraordinary:  

(1) it’s the most expensive gift you’ll ever receive!  It was paid for by Jesus’s own life!   
(2) it’s the only gift you’ll receive that will last forever – eternal life.  
(3) it’s extremely practical – one that you’ll use every day for the rest of your life.

Who wouldn’t want a gift like that!?!    And the wonderful news is, the gift is free to everyone!    All you have to do is accept it.
