The Perfect Gift
Advent comes from the Latin word “adventus” meaning “coming” and begins four Sundays before Christmas and ends on Christmas Eve. For the greatest gift to the world arrived on Christmas Day.
Many have already begun the frantic search for the perfect gift to give to someone. We will spend countless hours preparing and shopping to ensure everyone on our list has the perfect gift.
God in His infinite wisdom realized that any gift should possess the following characteristics.
- Satisfies a desire. Romans 6:23.
- Fills a need. Romans 3:23, 24.
- Is perfectly timed. Romans 5:8
- Reveals a motive noble and selfless. 1 John 4:9, 10.
Remember you can show God your appreciation for sending His Only Son to die on the cross for you by exercising your faith in Him.
So this year, the perfect gift may not be what you can buy someone but is what you can give of yourself to bless someone by doing a kind deed that is selfless and noble.
