The Greatest Gift: Jesus’ Wish (Christmas Eve)

I can’t help but wonder if Mary and Joseph and Jesus didn’t have much use for the gifts the magi brought–not that they were ungrateful, but they just weren’t used to such extravagance.

That begs the question: What does Jesus want?

A couple of Christmas song/poem writers pondered that question. I have not gift to bring. What can I give him, poor as I am?

If we spend our lives considering and answering this question–what does Jesus want?–we will have spent our lives well.

Message from Christmas Eve, 2015.
