We all get so busy with the shopping, parties, and festivities of Christmas. We buy presents for everyone on Jesus’s birthday! When Jesus was born the wise men gave him precious gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh:
Gold is the most precious metal, the gift for a KING.
Frankincense was used in Temple worship to GOD, signifying God is with us.
Myrrh was a spice used to embalm a body after DEATH, signifying the Savior who came to die.
What precious gift can we give to Jesus? This year we will give Jesus a gift from our family. We are giving Him the gift of Trust, to trust in Him and follow him. Jesus has everything, there is nothing we can give him but ourselves. That’s what He wants, a relationship with us.
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33
