The Free Gift 
By: Rick Boxx
December 26, 2011

At a company Christmas party I was invited to attend, the founders presented an interactive devotional for the employees. This husband and wife had a sack of gifts for pre-selected employees.

As they passed out the gifts, and urged the recipients to open them, they were told "No." Each person declined the gift. One was too busy, another was not worthy, and one already had everything they needed.

The point this couple so creatively communicated can be summarized with Romans 6:23. Paul taught, "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."


A gift is no good unless you accept it. If you haven't accepted God's free gift of eternal life I pray that you do this very day. 

If you’ve considered helping us build integrity and faith into workplaces by supporting these daily devotionals, but haven’t yet, please consider donating $25, $50, $100, or more to Integrity Resource Center today!
