Take It Home The Perfect Christmas Gift Day 2
Do you want the gift?
Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good! The Lord looks down from heaven on the entire human race; he looks to see if anyone is truly wise, if anyone seeks God. But no, all have turned away; all have become corrupt. No one does good, not a single one! Psalm 14:1–3 NLT
Ralphie, in the classic movie A Christmas Story, does not want, nor will he ever want, fluffy bunny footed pajamas. Any thoughtful giver should know they are inappropriate and unwanted. In our case of the Perfect Gift there’s no question that the gift of a Savior is appropriate. Psalm 14 makes that clear. The question is, do you want it?
Reflect on the truth of the Psalm. Identify the corruption of your heart’s desires. Identify when you have followed your own foolishness rather than the ways of God. Seek God and acknowledge how much you need His Perfect Christmas Gift.
