Forgotten in the Gifts (John 3:16)

All too often, in the midst of our exchange of presents, God’s gift is forgotten.

We can avoid this negligence by remembering to give from our heart. We can be inspired by love and gratitude not only for our loved ones but especially for the Supreme Giver of all good gifts – our heavenly Father.

Even the smallest, least expensive gifts can take our memories back to Bethlehem, where God gave to the world His love gift of infinite value, His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ (John 3:16). With each present we give and receive, we can say from our heart, “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” (2 Corinthians 9:15). – Vernon Grounds

As they offered gifts most rare

At that manger rude and bare,

So may we with holy joy,

Pure and free from sin’s alloy,

All our costly treasures bring

Christ, to Thee, our heavenly King. – Dix

The most important part of Christmas is the first six letters.
