Christmas presents are one of the great traditions of Christmas. Some people think it started with the Wise Men, or the legend of St Nicholas. It think the idea of Christmas gifts started with God. He gave the greatest gift - "For God so loved the world he gave his one and only son" John 3:16. What makes the best gift: how big it is? how ell it's wrapped? the cost? who gave it? What made the gift that started it all so valuable? Who gave it? - how loving heavenly father to all the world. Why was it given? - out of love, a no conditions, no limits, never ending love. How as it wrapped? - in swaddling clothes, sometimes the best gifts are disguised and need unwrapping and exploring to discover their full value. How much did it cost? - everything! God gave the most precious thing he had, his son. Jesus gave the most precious thing he had, his life! How useful is it? - the gift that started it all is the most 'useful' gift ever, the gift of eternal life - can't get better than that! Have you opened it and explored it?
