When I was a child - I remember the thrill of getting up in the morning and having all the presents waiting for us. I remember one Christmas, in the Solomon Islands, Mum and Dad bought what seemed to be a mountain of presents for us. They really wanted to make is a Christmas to remember! I remember sneaking out to the lounge room at around 2am, and seeing them there - and I just couldn't wait till morning!
It's easy to get caught up in the giving and receiving of gifts, and I love that just as much as the next person. But this Christmas, why not reflect on the most wonderful gift we could ever receive - Jesus Christ, Emmanuel, God with us.
It is in this reflection, you will realize how much your soul is worth - Your soul was worth so much to the King of Glory, He robed Himself in flesh, and came to save us from our sin. And that my friends is worth much more then any present you may receive on Christmas morning!
