In the midst of our shopping sprees and wrapping frenzies, remember this quote from Robert Flatt: “The giving of gifts is not something man invented. God started the giving spree when he gave a gift beyond words, the unspeakable gift of His Son.”
You may be disappointed that the box doesn’t contain the gift you hoped for. You may be disappointed that the one who received your gift didn’t seem to love it as much as you thought he or she would. Our gift giving and receiving can be disappointing, but God gave us a gift that will satisfy us for eternity – JESUS.
