A young refugee child was being shown the wonders of a large toy store by his foster parents. At first his eyes grew wide with wonder, but then an expression of disappointment clouded his face, and he burst out, “But where is the Child?” Somewhere in his past he had learned, “Unto you is born this day…a Saviour Who is Christ the Lord,” and that it is His birthday we celebrate at Christmas. Then, a discerning store official had a Christmas crib with an image of the baby Jesus set up in a prominent place in the store. Seeing it, the little boy smiled with delight. Unknowingly he had taught a lesson on the real meaning of Christmas. “Jesus is the reason for the season.” This Christmas, let’s remember that He is the “indescribable gift.” Will He be in your Christmas this year?
