Every Gift carries a message.

On Sunday I spoke at my church about gifts, and how each one carries a message.

Someone once said, there is no such thing as a free lunch, although this is not true, there is such a thing as a free lunch, even such a lunch carries a message.

What gifts can mean:-

  • I love you
  • I am trying to show that we are as good as xxx who also has one of these
  • I’m sorry
  • I want to make my peace with you
  • It’s Christmas and if I don’t get you something  you will be hurt
  • If I don’t buy you this you will continue to nag me for it
  • I’m hoping you give me something back
  • I want to prove something
  • I miss you
  • This gift is only part of a bigger picture, if you want the bigger picture, well you’ll have to buy it
  • I forgive you

So why not, next time you give or receive a gift, think about what the giver really meant by it. (sometimes, actually, it’s better not to ?!).

God gave us Jesus, and that is one awesome message. Check it out sometime.
