The Greatest Gift of All

Many years ago right around this time of season I was very annoyed by all of the advertisements and all of the attitudes I was seeing. It seemed like we had traded in the true meaning of Christmas for what material things we could get or receive? During that time I felt like God gave me this little poem. It’s a humble poem much like that first Christmas was! I pray that this Christmas season you take the time to really reflect on what Christmas is about. As you do I think you will be moved and inspired! As much as the advertising tries to show us products that supposedly fill all of our needs, their words are only empty promises. The greatest gift was given that first Christmas day and no other can truly make us happy. As you reflect on the love that God had for us, you will realize that his gift is the only one you truly need this Christmas!

The Greatest Gift of All

The Greatest Gift of All
from the book “The Gardener and My Garden” c1997

God sent his son
from heaven above
to give the world
undying love

He came to us
in the humblest of ways
Born in a barn
where animals stay

Wise men came
from miles afar,
bringing gifts,
let by a star

Yes, even then
God had a plan
to save the souls
of every man

The wise men rushed
when they heard the call
to see the greatest
gift of all

For God so loved the world that
he gave his one and only son,
that whoever believes in him shall
not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

    The true “reason for the season”! Have you noticed that now the politically correct people only say Happy Holidays?Isn’t it sad how they are trying to erase God from everything?
    Merry Christmas!!!! Great poem.

  2. Lewis, such a profound truth found in your lovely, yet “simple” poem. I find all the poetry the Lord has blessed you with in your wonderful book “The Gardener and My Garden” is of the same beautiful quality. Each poem though simple enough for young readers to comprehend, contains a profound spiritual truth that one can meditate upon and relate to in God’s holy word. Each poem is truly God inspired! Thank you for sharing your wonderful poems with us. God bless you!

  4. We just need to remember how much God loves us. He couldn’t have done anything more than He did to let us know!! Now it’s up to each of us individually to let our beliefs be known! Thank you for your inspirational words, and the thoughts they inspire.
