We surely can admit that we are a selfish society, yet we often seem more open to gifts from a fictional elf in red fur than to our Triune God!

There it was

On the table in the hall.

A beautifully wrapped package

With a bow

And a tag.

The dust on the top and sides

Betrayed the fact that

It lay unopened for a very long time.

Sad really,

As the contents surely would have been

A blessing to the recipient

Just at its use

Would have blessed the giver.

    Amen, Martha. You have nailed it. In our arrogance, we ignore the love letter sent by God to each of us. We would not think of doing this to our loved ones, but we do it all the time with the eternal God! Blessings to you, my friend.
