What’s the best gift you have ever received? I’ve had many great gifts over the years…the bionic man action figure with the the hole in his eye that you could look through…golf clubs…a ping pong table…my iPad last year. What about you?
What gifts stand out in your mind? In the last 8 issues we talked about creative gift giving ideas, and how to operate within a plan. So today, being the culmination of this discussion, I want to mention the best gift that any of us have ever received. See, at one time all of us were bankrupt and facing an uncertain future. This disciplines we needed we didn’t have, and we formed negative habits that were self destructive. Left to our own we would have no chance at success. But the perfect gift was given so that we would be able to overcome our negative patterns. That we would be prosperous, and live the positive life for which we were made. This gift was part of the master plan. Our negative ways placed us on a path of destruction; however, this gift restores the game plan that was in place at the beginning. Christmas is the celebration of the gift God gave to His people in order to reconcile us to Himself. The gift of His son…the perfect gift. Salvation, a prosperous life, peace…the perfect plan. Merry Christmas to all of of you, and may God bless you and your families.
