The Greatest Christmas Present
By Rita Broden
Once again it’s Christmastime – a time to celebrate
The meaning of our dear, sweet Savior’s birth
For God so loved we sinful folk He sent His only Son
To break the chains that bind us here on earth.
Forget about the parties you are scheduled to attend
Forget the fact the shopping isn’t done
Forget the decorations and the fact the tree’s not up
And try to focus wholly on God’s Son.
Fully knowing the rejection and the painful death He faced
Still He chose to live with us on earth
Showing us a better way – teaching us to love
No other Christmas present has such worth.
He provided us eternal life upon His painful death
The keys to death and hell He took in hand
ALL of this is Christmas! Every journey of His life!
No other Christmas present is so grand!
If you’re perplexed this Christmas about what to give to others
As you push your way through crowds within the Mall –
Here’s an answer to consider: The best gift to give would be
To share the greatest Christmas present of them all!
