Great Gift

family at dinnerA young boy had just learned how to tell time, and, more than anything else, he wanted a wristwatch for Christmas. He didn’t ask for anything else besides a watch. All day long he reminded his parents that he wanted a watch for Christmas.

Finally they had heard all they wanted to hear about the subject. They told him that he was not to ask for a watch again. If they heard him pleading for a watch just one more time, there would be negative consequences.

The family had a tradition of taking turns sharing a verse of Scripture at the dinner table before the meal each evening. It just so happened that it was the son’s turn to quote a verse that night. He shared with them these words of Jesus, from Mark 13:37—“What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’ ”

I hope you get everything you want this Christmas. More importantly, I hope that you have already accepted the greatest Christmas gift that was ever offered—Jesus Christ!

“Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!”—2 Corinthians 9:15.
