Christmas gifts are great fun. I remember a time I was delivered a very large package but as I opened it up, inside was a smaller package, inside that was another and another, until it was a very small but greatly desired gift I did not really need. Jesus the Creator of the Universe came wrapped in a tiny babe born to a virgin and lay in a straw lined manger. He was a most needed gift that now is my greatest desire.
Big Things Come in Small Packages
Big things come in small packages – it is true
I will give some examples to you.
Great commitment is represented; most agree,
By the tiny box, that accompanies the one upon his knee.
All heaven and earth testifies
Even the smallest truth will never be denied.
Take the example, of a tiny seed;
Within its little package lives the start of a tree.
An encouraging, spoken word, may become
A huge directional – change for someone.
Many packages are placed under Christmas trees,
They are expressions of love, and kindness to be received.
But, the Greatest Gift ever bestowed is Jesus Christ.
Upon a rugged tree your largest gift was sacrificed.
In the little town of Bethlehem, a child was to a virgin born.
In this tiny, little bundle the Creator was formed.
He that made the earth and all off a far too,
Was in this little package; delivered from the Father, to you.
Remember Him in your giving, as you celebrate the birth of God’s Son
By planting small, seeds of faith in the hearts of both old and young.
Big is the God of all that is and is to be,
But, He dwells within all that are His, for all eternity.
2 Corinthians 9:15
Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
