What is the best Christmas present you have ever been given?
As a child I remember my parents taking me out to the shed to give me my very own bike.
As a teenager I remember unwrapping my first Walkman with the latest Smash Hits cassette.
And as a young adult my favourite present was receiving a ring from the man who is now my husband.
Presents can be truly wonderful and they can show others how much we love and care for them.
That’s why God’s gift to us means so much. He gave us everything He had by sending his Son as a baby. This ultimate gift of love gave way to peace, grace and forgiveness. It is a gift that never stops giving and everyone has access to.
It doesn’t matter how much money you have, what you look like or where you live, God’s gift of love is available to everyone, you just have to accept it.
