Christmas Day: Underwear Again!

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.
(James 1:17)

Remember as a kid when you would get underwear for a Christmas present. Man, there ought to be a law against putting wrapping paper on socks and underwear. No doubt tomorrow morning many will be disappointed with their gifts, both young and old (its one of the trappings of our affluent society). But aren’t you glad that the real gift of Christmas has already been given. Jesus is the perfect gift for those who will trust and follow Him. So tomorrow morning when you get another tie or a new blender, be thankful to the giver and whisper a prayer of thankfulness to your Father in Heaven for His perfect gifts.

Application: Do an inventory of top ten gifts God has given you this year and thank Him for each one
