Perfect Gift

dec-21Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” James 1:17 (NKJV)

Are you in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season and looking for the perfect gift?  Perhaps we should look closer to home and we may find it. I say this as I look down at a simple piece of candy, a cow tail. My husband whenever he is at the store and sees one he thinks of me and brings one home. It’s not the most expensive thing in the world but it’s full of love. To me that thought is the greatest gift. Another gift I get from my husband that doesn’t cost a thing is safety. Every morning that I am home and he has to head to work, he makes sure the door is locked. Again, it doesn’t cost a thing but that little action shows so much love and how he cares for me.

Every day little actions, a smile, kind word, or even a simple treat can be the perfect gift to someone. God sent us the perfect gift in the manager many years ago. That gift set off a chain of events that would lead to the gift of eternal life. Things of this world will pass away but the gift of love will last forever.

“Father God, help us to not get caught up in the “stuff” of life and focus on love. May we accept the gift of eternal life that was so freely given out of sacrificial love.”

For His Glory
