The Perfect Gift
When I was a youngster, the Christmas catalog would arrive in the mail and I would spend hours looking for the perfect gift.
One year I asked Santa for a James Bond Car it was the perfect gift until the wheels fell off.
The following year was a Thing Maker. When you poured plasti-goop in a die cast medal mold you cooked up creepy crawlers. It was the perfect gift until it caught fire.
The problem with these gifts is they didn’t last very long. They would either break or I would get tired of them. So, much for the perfect gift.
God gift wrapped His only son and sent Him to save us from sin. The gift in the manger is better than any gift under a tree. A relationship with Christ and the gift of grace is truly the gift that keeps on giving. It is the perfect gift.
