Choosing the perfect gift has become a daunting task. I read a small piece written by Oren Arnold recommending what to give others for Christmas. To paraphrase his words: “To your enemy, give forgiveness. To your opponent, give tolerance. To your friends, give your heart. To your customers, give service. To all, give charity. To every child, give a good example. To yourself, give respect.”
Not a bad list at all.
I love the part of the Christmas story when the angels come to deliver the birth announcement. They didn't come bringing a pair of gloves or a dollar bill, but the greatest announcement of all time:
But the angel said to them, Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is the Messiah, the Lord.
Have you received the greatest gift? I don't mean a glove from Grandma Moore or a dollar bill from Granddad Scott.
The greatest gift, sent by God Himself, was His only Son. I highly recommend Him.
