Have you noticed the need for a toolbox with various shaped and sized tools to open the simplest gifts, another result of our imperfect world? I’m convinced the packaging must cost manufacturers more than the gift in some cases. In an effort to prevent stealing, the product is strapped, tied, and screwed down; plastic covering it on both sides and sealed at the edges. It’s not easy to open these gifts. However the gift of Jesus is the most special, simplest-to-open gift of all time. Like the angel said to the shepherds that night Jesus was born, “I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people” (Luke 2:10). The Son came to earth to do miracles, ministry, and die on the cross so we could have forgiveness and life. Jesus is the Good News and God the Father’s easy-to-open gift of joy for all people. Open your heart to receive Him, if you haven’t already. It’s a simple way to make Christmas this year your most perfect ever!
