Daily in Your Presence - Dec. 25

Day 360


"If you knew the gift of God

and who it is that asks you. . . ."

John 4:10

My child, of all the gifts you receive this year, what can compare to the very first gift—Jesus? Which one offers lasting peace and eternal security? After the ribbons are torn from their brightly wrapped boxes, which ones will bring contentment and comfort and hope long after the celebrations are past? My child, keep Me in your celebrations—always. And remember to celebrate with childlike faith My greatest gift to you for all time.

You are more precious than incense, more costly than gold, more fragrant than myrrh—You are the priceless gift of God. I can only offer You humble gifts—a solitary prayer, a sacrifice of gratitude and praise, a broken life. Jesus, You'll always be the very best gift to me.


Jesus is the only gift that lasts forever.
