The Greatest Christmas Gift Ever

There is a series of commercials out this year for a luxury automobile that has each spot stating with a view of "the greatest Christmas present ever" for various people. A Big Wheel, a pony, and an Atari video game are three of those. The commercial then morphs into the present day where the car is now the "greatest Christmas present ever."

The ads are a sad picture of what Christmas has become--an attempt to come up with the "greatest Christmas present ever" every year. I news for you, the greatest Christmas present ever was given by God nearly 2000 years ago. On that first Christmas morning, our Savior was born to bring us back to God.

Enjoy your Christmas. Enjoy giving and receiving gifts. But remember this, the greatest gift is one that was given a long time ago in the little town of Bethlehem. When you remember that, then everything else will fall into its proper place.

Merry CHRISTmas!
