God knows how to give the best Christmas presents. God uses people to give us many goodies and items. Perhaps He is most famous for giving us things we can’t buy such as hope, joy, peace and unconditional love.
The Gift of Life: Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. God’s precious gift of a Messiah came in the form of a human baby. He gives us the gift of human life every time a baby is conceived. Scripture contains many stories of couples who could not get pregnant. They went to God for their answers knowing that ultimately God is the giver of life. Every person on earth has a divine plan from heaven for their life. Fulfillment often comes from living out this divine destiny.
Daily Blessings Psalm 68:19 “Blessed by the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, The God of our salvation.” Daily loaded with blessings. What a great gift. Just living in America comes with a lot of blessings. Most people have running water, bathrooms in the house, water heaters that provide warm showers every day.
Gifts Offer Introductions Proverbs 18:16 “A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men.” As we offer gifts to others, it does soften a heart to hear. It does offer opportunities to come before men and women of importance and state our causes. A giving heart produces a life full of opportunities. I’m also reminded of 1 Peter 3:15 which suggests we be ready to give a reason for the hope that is in you with meekness and respect. “If someone asks about our hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it.” NLT.
