What will you give Jesus for His birthday?

A Conversation with my 5yr old, Madilyn Allsup: 

Madilyn: I want to go to Jesus’ birthday.

Me: Absolutely! We will have it here.

Madilyn: Oh, I need to get him a gift. (she ponders for a second)

Madilyn: I know! I will give him ME!

Me: Madilyn, that is the best gift of all.

Madilyn: I’ll have to wait until I die though.

Me: You can give Him your gift of yourself every day. Isn’t that amazing?

Madilyn: That is so amazing. Will Noni (her grandmother) be here?

Me: Not for Christmas, she will be in Texas.

Madilyn: She needs to have Jesus’ birthday there then.

Me: Yes, that would be nice. You should ask her.

What will you be giving Jesus this year? Will it be your time, money, or addiction? We all have something to give and the greatest gift is the gift of yourself like my daughter said. If you think about the reason for the Christmas season, it is so that God can give YOU His greatest gift in the form of himself–Jesus Christ.

I urge you dear readers to think about the gift exchange between God and you. Are you going to except His gift of Jesus Christ this year? Are you going to give something back to God? What type of gift exchange will surround your family this year?

**I read a blog recently where someone had left a comment and I thought it was a great idea so I will share with you. They said that they buy a white stocking and write their gift to God on it and then next year they get it out and see if they truly gave God that gift during the year. We, the Allsup family, are going to do that this year and we urge others to utilize this great idea.

Merry Christmas from the Allsups!

    Your blog was simple but consisted of such a great message. As you said we should all be giving a gift to Jesus Christ for his birthday an it doesn’t have to be something complicated or expensive. Lol. I love the white stocking idea as well. I will keep your family in my prayers and it was a blessing to be able to read this. Thank you.
