Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like the shifting shadows. James 1:17
It is officially Christmas season and the buzz is in the air. As we rush from store to store to find gifts and stockings for all of our loved ones, our hearts search for the one perfect gift.
As I walked into Hobby Lobby two little hands in my hands this week I was thinking about what the new color scheme would look like this year. What is the trend? It seems every year there is more; more decorations, more colors, more toys, more electronics, more, more, more. But more stuff doesn’t fill up our hearts and something inside of me yearns to tell those little boys in my hands that there is SO MUCH MORE. More to the perfect gift than what our eyes can see.
There is a good and perfect gift that came down from above, the gift that gives us hope. It is:
- A gift that is constant in an ever-changing world
- A gift that is steadfast when life seem sporadic
- A gift that doesn’t fade away, grow old or wear out
The most amazing part of the gift is that it doesn’t matter what walk of life we come from we can ALL receive Him, who is the good and perfect gift.
