2 Corinthians 9:15, “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift.”

It was obviously a few years back, since the reporter for ‘Good Morning America’ at the time was Joan Lunden… But, I remember the Christmas that she detailed some extraordinary gifts you might want to include on your wish list.  [Of course you would have to up the ante to allow for inflation in these prices.]  One of them was a Jaguar 220.  It requires an $80,000 deposit with the remaining $587,000 due upon delivery.  [They only make 250 of these a year.]  She also mentioned that if you were to purchase such an automobile, you might also be interested in the new car wax that promises to give your Jaguar the ultimate shine.   It retails for $3400 for an eight ounce can!  Or, if this package is too much, you could opt for a $28,000 pacifier, a $27,000 pair of sunglasses, an $18,000 frisbee, a $12,000 mousetrap or a $10,000 yo-yo.   These gifts stagger the imagination, but they are not indescribable.

There is an often-quoted Christmas card that goes like this:

“If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent an educator.  If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent a scientist.  If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent an entrepreneur.  If our greatest need had been pleasure, God would have sent an entertainer.  But our greatest need was forgiveness, so God sent us a Savior.”

Pray with me… Our Loving Father, You are the giver of every good and perfect gift, but the best gift and the most perfect gift is the indescribable gift you gave us in Jesus.  We thank you for seeing beyond our faults to supply our needs.  In Jesus’ dear Name, amen.
