Every second Tuesday a few of us have the wonderful opportunity to help with Supernatural Kids, a childrens after school program where the children are given the chance to learn about who Jesus christ is and how knowing Him changes the way we live. This Tuesday, December first was our Christmas party and the last Supernatural Kids for 2015. Now what do you think the kids thought of when I asked them about boxes at Christmas time. Of course you know they are thinking of what comes in those boxes; presents! There are two things that can happen with gifts. You can receive them or give them. God has given us the ultimate gift in His Son Jesus Christ. When we truly receive that precious gift we become members of God’s family. We receive eternal life.
Let’s flip things around for a second and ask ourselves this; what can we give to God? I asked the children to invision a box. Then to imagine a peice of paper with “ME”, written on it in large letters. Now, see ourselve putting “me”, in the box, wrapping it up and giving this gift to God. To simple. Absolutely true. What do you give someone who really does have everything? Yourself.
Merry Christmas and God bless you richly.
