Presents. The thematic wrap. The perfectly chosen trim. The colorful and accentuating ribbons and bows. And … name tags! That is an exciting addition. To know that you have a gift to open. And they are made to be received and opened. (Ask the detective Monk). Gifts may look pretty, but they are made to be received and opened.
One year, my mother switched all the name tags and then forgot what she switched to what. Not cool when I opened my sister’s gift. Not cool.
The greatest gift is from God, and the tag says ‘to the WORLD!’ But the gift, His son, too needs to be received. That is the greatest present … and it’s got your name on it.
Won’t you receive Him?
