Gift giving (12/17/02)

So have you all finished your Christmas shopping?  You don’t have many days left.  Undoubtedly, people right now are searching for that special gift for a particular loved one.  And in the selecting of that gift, they pay a price.  Gift giving at Christmas is a remarkable picture of the greatest gift exchange of all.  God offers to us His gift – the cleansing of our hearts from sin and eternal life through His Son.  And believe me, there was no greater price that has ever been paid for a gift.  May you and all your family and friends see this as you open up your gifts this Christmas.  There is something worse than physical blindness; it’s a blind heart.  A blind girl, Helen Keller, once wrote:

The only blind person at Christmastime is he who has not Christmas in his heart.
