Gifts

The Christmas season is now upon us.
It has been here since Thanksgiving evening.

People rush rush rush to get all of their toys and toys for their children.
Push, push,shove, shove all to get what?

A toy which will be forgotten before Christmas night.
The largest television to surpass the Jones.

Children run down early on Christmas morn to rip rip the pretty paper, 
From boxes that contain Christmas wishes for
Nintdos, X-boxes, I-pads and alike.

There's one gift that no one pushes and shoves to get, 
One that doesn't have to be charged to all ready extended credit cards,
It is left unopened, unwrapped.

It is a gift which is given to all of us who want to except it.
It is the gift of salvation through our God, 
Who loved us so much that he gave his only begotten son,
So we do not perish but have everlasting life.

This gift is more precious than gold or silver.

So during this Christmas season take time and open the gift that
God has given all of us.

Those of us who have opened the gift,
Take time and thank him for his gift.

And don't forget that Jesus is the true reason for the season.
