You spend hundreds of dollars, dozens of hours and untold amounts of worry trying to get Christmas gifts for others. What’s so crazy about this annual ritual is that all too often it’s an obligatory act that carries little meaning. Contrast this with what happens when you give someone a Christmas gift that expresses how you feel and that you know will be meaningful to that person. Both of you are filled with joy that enriches your life far beyond that moment of gift giving. This is why Jesus’ birth is the best Christmas present ever – because God literally is sharing himself with you!
