Gift for God?
We’ve all heard the expression, “what do you give a person who has everything?” Now in reality, none of us really has “everything”; but many of us do have most of the things we want that those who plan to give us gifts could give. I don’t “have” an all expense paid trip to Hawaii; so I hardly have “everything” but I don’t have any friends or family who has the resources or the inclination to give me such a trip.
But God is “someone” Who really does have everything. So, if you want to give a gift to God this Christmas season, what might it be? He doesn’t need a tie. He doesn’t need airline tickets. He doesn’t need a sweater. But He does like gifts…that is if the “gifts” are from His children. And the gifts He is looking for are not monetary in nature. I think it would be a good idea to spend a few minutes thinking about what you might want to give God as a gift this Christmas season. Really, think about it for a few minutes. Could you give Him a commitment to read His word? Would you consider a commitment to prayer? Would you consider allowing Him to help you forgive someone against whom you’ve been holding a grudge for a long time?
Consider what type of gift you might give to God. When you give Him gifts, He always gives back in an even bigger way.
