At the Christmas season once again, we reflect on the greatness of the Gift of God by comparing His giving with our own. We see:

  • We give to those we love; He gave to those He did not have to love.
  • We give to those who love us; He gave to those who actually hated Him.
  • We give things that the recipients often do not need; He gave us what we really need.
  • We give things that will not last and in any case we will have to give up when we die; He gave us something that will last forever.

Believers are encouraged to praise God anew for His wonderful goodness to us. Unbelievers are invited to put their trust in Christ as their Savior, so that they too may receive all the benefits and blessings of this glorious Gift.
