Can You Find the Right Gift?

December 20, 2010

Christmas seems to be a time when a lot of stress comes from trying to find the right gift for that special person. Clothing is a risk: will it be the right size, color, or style? Games are a gamble: will it be cool enough and new enough? Food is hard: will it be on their diet or trigger an allergic reaction or do they even like it? The neutral things seem too impersonal: how do money or gift cards say “I love you”?

The first Christmas gift was not brought by the wise men, it was sent from God. The best gift is not really any ‘thing’, it is a person. God sent his Son, ‘Special Delivery’.

As you prepare to celebrate Christmas with family and friends, first make sure you have opened your heart to receive God’s gift. Then don’t worry about if they will like the present, just make sure you are fully present. Most presents will be forgotten. Presence is what people want most. Close your wallet and open your heart, then you will give the most meaningful present you have!
