The Perfect Present

  1. The perfect present doesn’t come in a box
    It doesn’t come all wrapped up in paper
    It doesn’t even come wrapped in foil

    The perfect present doesn’t come with directions
    It doesn’t come with a 10-page manual or an instruction booklet
    It doesn’t come with a video screen, or a computer chip
    And it doesn’t come with batteries

    The perfect present doesn’t come with extra pieces
    It doesn’t come in textures or tones or sizes
    There is nothing to try on or fit
    And it doesn’t come with a key

    The perfect present isn’t accompanied by rings
    It doesn’t jingle and it doesn’t clang
    It doesn’t glitter or gleam, and isn’t attached to bling bling

    The perfect present doesn’t even come with a ribbon
    Not a red one, not a green one, not a blue one, not a one…

    The perfect present has no scent or aroma
    But it does have a sweet smell of sacrifice

    The perfect present came as a little baby,
    Breathed of the Holy Ghost, and born of a virgin
    Birthed in a lonely manger, surrounded by animals
    Wrapped in swaddling clothes.

    The perfect present left heaven above, came down to earth,
    Lived like a servant, died like a sinner,
    And was raised to life by God as a King.

    The perfect present comes with a gift.
    His name... Jesus.
    His gift… Eternal life.

    And while this may not come with a bow, I hear it rewards the receiver with streets paved of pure gold… (Rev. 21:20-22)

    Be blessed.
    Sis. E
