Forgotten Gift By Brenda Drake

In our Christmas celebrations let us not forget Jesus, the real reason for the season.

The Forgotten Gift

The forgotten gift under the tree,
Was a seemingly unimportant thing to see.
Of all the packages this one thing,
Could cause the thankful heart to sing.
Forgotten gifts have ruined the day for some;
Never easily again would the same mistake be done.
Like a tiny battery that is not there;
Such a small thing that was spared.
Forgotten in the preparations- they just slipped the mind.
Usually they will not be overlooked the next time.

In the celebrations of Christmas multitudes do the same thing,
They forget to give honor to Christ bring:
The gift on the tree,
That purchased all they would ever need.
They forget the reason for the season, God’s gift to man.
His birth was the beginning of the Father’s Masterplan.

You may have forgotten the gift Jesus most craves;
As you pass gifts to others on Christmas day.
But His love reaches across the world with joy and peace,
 As the old and the young His bounty receive.
He has not and never will forget your name.
He has carried every worry, every sin and every shame.
For those who believe, His love has already for you prepared a place,
To receive His gift to live forever in His loving embrace.

Revelations 3:20
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door,
I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
