Christmas Gift

Christmas will be in a few days.
It is a time for joy for many people.
Gift-giving, often lavish and extravagant,
helps to make the season bright.

Yet, the first Christmas was very simple and literally poor.
It was about ordinary women (Mary, Elizabeth), poor carpenters and shepherds,
no room at the inn, manger for a crib –
all considered austere and at the outer fringes of mainstream Jewish society.

But it was a joyous occasion celebrated by angels and wise men (not kings) from afar.
We need no gifts to feel the joy of Christmas.
The baby born in the manger is gift enough.
In fact, He is the only gift we need.
