Once there were two people

Updated on November 10, 2011

Once there were two people who loved each other so very much, they wanted to give each other a gift for Christmas, but they did not have enough money to buy what the other needed.

The man needed a gold chain for his pocket watch, the woman needed a clip for her lovely long golden hair.

When Christmas came each had their gift for the other all neatly wrapped up and they exchanged their gifts.

Bob gave to Mary the lovely hair clip,

Mary gave to Bob the gold watch chain,

But as each gift cost a lot of money which niether had, bob sold his watch to get enough money to buy the hair clip for Mary.

And Mary cut and sold her lovely golden hair to pay for the gold watch chain.

When they unwrapped each of their gifts they saw that the gift now was no good to them anymore, but what they did was to give each other the most precious gift they could pay for, because of their love to each other, even they had to make a sacrifice to make the other happy by giving what they needed.

When we give to another do we go that far, do we make any sacrifies to please the other?

Didn't God make a sacrifice for us when He gave His Son to die for us, regardless the cost.

John 3:16. God so loved the world that He gave His only Son,.............

      Hello Raymond,

      Sometimes I read HP late at night, and apparently my brain was not working. The love was the obvious link. It's a beautiful story and if someone never heard it, they will enjoy the experience of the two lovers who both gave up what they loved the most for each other. And think about the love God has for us, and hopefully the love we should have for our fellow man. Please accept my apologies for being cranky! Best wishes in your writing.

      I did that because so many people don't realize the love that comes with the gift, and also many don't know about the love that God gives to us when He gave His Son to the world for many who want to receive this gift.

      I thank you for coming and reading Jean.

      This is a lovely and well known story, not written by you, but I am unsure who the real author is. And I don't know why you used it to point to a scripture.
