It’s what Christmas is really all about.
The goosebumps I get never come from what I receive but rather the reaction of my loved one to the gift given. Even then, it’s not actually about the gift, it’s about the effort and thought put into the gift, about the reaction on their face.
God gave us Jesus, and when I really stop to think about it, about how Joseph had to trust what Mary said was true, about how Mary endured the scorn of her culture, those goosebumps show up again. I wonder how God feels at that moment when we respond to the Gift He has given to us.
Don’t let this Christmas pass you by without stopping to reflect on the gift of Jesus.
We are so thankful for each and everyone of you. Merry Christmas!
