Think of a person who has received a gift from you. Now imagine that individual not opening that gift.
How would you feel? You probably would be hurt or offended because your gift was put to the side and left untouched.
Well, that is the same way most of us have responded to God's gift. Did you know that God has given us a Christmas gift? But maybe some of us have never heard of or unwrapped that gift.
When we think of Christmas we may be busy thinking on the type of gift to give to someone. After the gift is presented to the individual, the item may not last for a long period of time. After a while the piece of clothing may get too small or large for a person. A toy given to a child may break and yet other gifts may wear out, such as a pair of shoes.
