Your Favorite Christmas Gift
I hope you had a GREAT Christmas this year! Here is a story you may like:
A family member asked Meg(4) the day after Christmas,
“Meg, what was your favorite Christmas gift this year?” Her response?
“That is great Meg,” she said, “What was your second favorite gift?”
“My second favorite gift is the same as my first favorite gift: Jesus. Jesus is all we need…and I love him (think Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf proclaiming his love for Santa)!!”
Was she playing us with a “church” answer? Maybe. I don’t think she was though.
Her answer was not rehearsed. It was not canned. She was being as honest and real as she could think to be. To my four-year-old, toys and electronics were riff-raff compared to the gift of Jesus that gives her endless joy. She has heard us speak of Jesus, but more importantly she has experienced the joy of Jesus.
Jesus is all we really need. So what do you think of Meg’s response?
