"When they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold and frankincense and myrrh."
- Matthew 2:11
 
Merchants have been reminding us for some time that only a certain number of days remain to do our  Christmas gift shopping. We find delight in planning to exchange gifts with loved ones and friends at Christmas. But have we also put God on our Christmas gift list?

Merchants have been reminding us for some time that only a certain number of days remain to do our  Christmas gift shopping. We find delight in planning to exchange gifts with loved ones and friends at Christmas. But have we also put God on our Christmas gift list?
 
God, has made us the most lavish Christmas gift of all. "God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son." There is no other Christmas gift to be compared with that.  When St. Paul thought of it, he exclaimed in ecstasy: "Thanks be to God for His unspeakable Gift."  Like the Apostle, we too, cannot find words to express our wonder and amazement. But gratefully we accept God's gift in faith and rejoice in our salvation wrapped up in it.
 
Christian friends, Our Christmas joy will be much richer if we plan to make a special gift to God at Christmas. The Magi brought gold, frankincense, and myrrh. We, too, can bring gold;  God uses our money in many ways to accomplish His purposes. We must bring Him the frankincense of our worship at Christmas; nor dare we forget the myrrh, or works of charity. A gift to the poor is a Christmas gift to God. With shepherds and wisemen , let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker, and our Redeemer.
 
      You glorified a manger
      When You chose it for Your own.
      O, Savior, come into my heart
      And take it for Your own.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - "Though Christ a thousand times in Bethlehem be born, it shall avail thee naught save He be born in thee."
