If you were to have one gift under the tree
And that gift was a gift God would receive
I wonder what it would consist of.
How would it communicate your love?
Who would open it? Where would it go?
If it was a gift for God I would truly want to know?
Could it be for the neighbor that has had a hard year?
Or perhaps it is for the one lonely with a heart full of unshed tears?
Or for the one that warms a bench always in plain sight
That has a blank stare whose eyes have lost their light?
If you were to deliver it would you just lay it down?
Or would you show honor as you place it on holy ground?
Would you make known your giving so others see,
What you bestow as an offering to your Lord and King?
Instead, would you greedily keep it ….no doubt,
As an offering to your god of self?
This word of rhyme desires to show in this special season
Christ is the gift delivered and He is the reason
He is love, peace, joy and goodwill
Share with the one special with needs to be filledWhen you give to them and in their thanks. By faith hear your Lord say,
“I am glorified by the gift you gave to me today.”
Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
