It’s pretty late and I’m tired so I’m gonna try and make this quick 🙂 . I was thinking about the events of today…wait, yesterday and a question that was asked at the Christmas Eve service that I attended during the day was at the forefront of my mind. “What do you give someone who has everything?”
It’s Christmas season and gifts are being exchanged on a rather massive scale. We also talk about the Gift who is the reason for the season: Jesus Christ, the precious lamb of God who was sent down to earth to carry the weight of our sins. Praise God for His death and resurrection!
So I was thinking, we give gifts to people around us, and we thank God for His Gift to us but what is our gift to God? Tough question! God has everything so what do you give to someone who has everything? It is certainly not a question that comes up very often. I am not going to pretend to have a finite answer to this question because I am still puzzled by it. One thing I know for sure is that whatever you give, you need to give genuinely. It might be your time, your material resources, your talent… the list is endless.
The bottom line is that God has everything, but you can give Him a gift by doing something – anything – regardless of how small or big towards the expansion of His Kingdom here on earth. Share Christ with someone today! After all, He is the Reason for the Season.
With love from Smithia.
