I was in Church last Sunday and the priest told us a story…
“One day a man was telling little children about Christmas and about Jesus. Then he asked all the kids to illustrate what they’ve just learned. As he was walking around, he saw that a kid drew the manger containing two babies; Jesus and another boy.
The man was surprised, and confused, so he asked the little boy about the other baby in the manger.
The boy looked at him and said, “Well, I thought Baby Jesus could use warmth. And he knows what it’s like to be loved; having a family to keep Him warm. So, I thought that if I drew myself in that manger, I could keep Him warm too.”
The man was moved when he found out that boy was an orphan, and yet he had something to offer Jesus.”
The moral of this tale is that everyone has a gift to offer to Jesus. It doesn’t have to be extravagant. Jesus accepts the simplest forms of gifts.
Merry Christmas and God bless you all.
