Tis the season to be jolly, and to give and receive gifts. Pretty much everyone I know enjoys receiving gifts, but i don’t know of anyone who would enjoy a gift that someone dug out of a dumpster, or one that was purchased at the cheapest possible place without any forethought or consideration of the recipient. God gave us the best, the ultimate gift – His Son – so shouldn’t we give something of value in return? But what do you get the guy who has everything? The one thing He doesn’t have but we do that we can give Him is ourselves. King David, in a scene from the Old Testament said that he wasn’t going to give God “that which costs me nothing”. He knew that a meaningful gift is one that costs us something whether it’s time, money, or effort. This Christmas let’s not give some quick, cheap gift to God, but rather let’s give that which costs us something.
