Day 3 – Christmas Gifts
Verse: Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
This time of year is all about gifts.
It seems like every year, stores put out their holiday displays earlier in the season. It won’t be long before merchants will have year-round Christmas displays.
I admit that while I love my family dearly, and Christmas morning is so much fun watching the excited faces of my 5 children, the thought of all the gift-giving at Christmas is overwhelming to me.
There are years I would love to skip the whole process.
Maybe you can relate.
This passage from James tells us everything we need to know about finding the perfect gift. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father.
God’s presence is the perfect gift.
Prayer: Dear Father, This time of year it’s easy to get caught up in all the busy gift giving. Help me to remember that your presence is the ultimate gift. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
