Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

December 26, 2009

the greatest gift

The packages have all been opened,
the gift getting and giving is over.

The food and treats were great,
the laughter and fun with family and friends
are now memories.

But how much time was spent
thinking about the Lord, Jesus Christ,
and the greatest, most important,
gift of all time?

“This is Christmas:
not the tinsel,
not the giving and receiving,
not even the carols,
but the humble heart
that receives anew
the wondrous gift, the Christ.”
- Frank McKibben
