What would Jesus want for a Christmas present?

info@islandpacket.comDecember 4, 2013 

On Black Friday, thousands of eager shoppers were looking for bargains. Most of the gift seeking was easy, as lists were prepared, and special requests had already been sent off to Santa.

But for many shoppers, the perennial question was, "What do we get for Aunt Sophia? She has everything. What do you give someone who has everything?"

As I thought about this, I wondered what Jesus would want for Christmas. He too has everything. What kind of gift would he want me to give him? Where would I buy it? If it can't be found in a store, where would I look for it? I'm not sure I know the answer to this question. Perhaps some other newspaper readers have some thoughts on this.
