Third Day of Advent 2013
As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.” (Luke 21:1-4 NIV)
Although not biblical, Little Drummer Boy holds biblical truth as it captures the heart of giving. Some may possess great wealth and thereby have the means to purchase extravagant gifts fit for an earthly king. But no one can give a gift fit for the King of kings. Nothing we possess is worthy.
Enjoy the sounds of Christmas as you prepare for Jesus’ second coming.
See you in a Twinkling,
