The Real Gift of Life I want to talk about a second real gift of Christmas—the gift of real life! How can we know, receive, and experience this gift of REAL LIFE?
We’re all familiar with the traditions relating to the Wise Men. For instance, for some reason we’ve decided there were three of them. The Bible doesn’t say that, but it does say there were three kinds of gifts given.
One thing we can say that when those wise men saw the star, they followed it to its logical conclusion–they saw the light and they acted on it! They responded to it! You could also say there were far more people who saw the same light and didn’t follow it than those who did see it and followed it.
Many people understand what Christmas is all about—the birth of Jesus the Savior of the World—but they choose not to follow it out to it’s logical conclusion and they don’t center their lives around him.
