SHARING OF CHRISTMAS’ GIFTS THROUGH CHRIST’S LOVE!
And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me’ (Matthew 25:40).
Today happens to be a Boxing Day’s Celebration; a day set aside worldwide in celebrating the love of Jesus Christ through the sharing and opening of gifts in life. The Bible says in the opening text that the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to share Christmas’ gifts to all his neighbors in life. Boxing Day also offers the unique opportunity to love and share gifts with the less privilege in the society in life forever.
The Bible gave us a vivid account of what happened during the birth of Jesus Christ in the Bible. It was recorded about the wise men from the Far East thus, “And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh” (Matthew 2:11). Therefore, whoever shares his gifts with his neighbors and less privilege in the society is doing the will of God and fulfilling His mandate in life concerning Christmas Day’s celebration forever.
The Bible further gave us another scenario about Mary whom Jesus Christ cast out seven demons in the Bible. She shared her gift full of love with Jesus Christ thus, “Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil” (John 12:3). In fact, the gifts that are offered during Christmas Day’s celebration are indeed full of divine fragrance in life. God expects you to share your gifts with your neighbors and the less privilege in the society in life forever. Happy Christmas/ Boxing Day’s Celebration!
Daily Tip: Every Christian should learn to share his gifts especially with the less privilege in the society during this Christmas and Boxing Day’s Celebration because there is love in sharing in life forever. Shalom!
