Christmas Gifts

The Christmas tradition of giving gifts is based on our Bible verses today. The wise men gave gifts to Jesus.
Our Bible Reading mentions three gifts that the wise men brought to Jesus. These men brought gifts that were very special and valuable — gold, frankincense and myrrh. Later, Joseph and Mary may have sold these gifts and used the money for their trip to Egypt.
We all know that gold is a valuable metal. Frankincense is a white sticky substance that comes from the bark of a tree. People burned frankincense as part of their worship. Myrrh comes from a small bush and was burned as a perfume or used to prepare people for burial.
The best gift that you can give this Christmas is to give your life to Jesus. If you are not a Christian, I hope you will start following Jesus as your Savior. If you are already a Christian, examine your life and make sure you are giving Jesus all of your life.
