What Can I Give Him

When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. And going into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother, and they fell down and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered Him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.

Matthew 2:10-11

 

I have a friend whose younger brother became a very successful and wealthy country songwriter. Each year at Christmas, my friend faced a predicament: what to give someone who has everything he wants and needs absolutely nothing?

 

One year, my friend came up with a Christmas gift that only he could give his brother. He found and had restored several old photographs of his brother and himself with their mom and dad from their childhood in Texas. He had them beautifully displayed, and the gift carefully wrapped.

 

He knew this was his best gift.  And, it was one that could only come from him.

 

What do you give Jesus - the King, the Son of God?    He has everything He needs.

 

There's one only one thing you can give Jesus.  You can give Him yourself. You can give Him your heart. You can give Him your praise.

 

I love the song – What Can I Give Him? 

What can I give Him, poor as I am?  If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb. If I were a wise man, I would do my part. Yet what can I give Him? I can give Him my heart.

 

No one can give Jesus your heart but you.  No one can give Him your praise but you.  No one can give Him your adoration but you.

 

What will you give Jesus this Christmas season?

 

Have a great day and keep moving forward!
