A Meaningful Gift

Have you ever opened an especially meaningful present on Christmas morning? As you unwrap the paper, you discover an extravagant gift that you wouldn’t have imagined someone might give you. Simultaneously the significance of this gift dawns on you. The person who gave it to you loves you more than you knew. If this is how we feel with meaningful gifts in our lives, imagine what impact the love of God will make on us when we reflect on the meaning of Jesus’s crucifixion. God loves us and longs to give us that which is good.
