It’s the week before Christmas — do you have all your Christmas gifts purchased? Pressure.

I marvel at people who have the best ideas when it comes to gift giving. I struggle trying to find the “perfect” gift that will be enjoyed, needed, or accepted.

But all the stress I place on finding the “perfect” gift is inconsequential. The Perfect Gift was born in Bethlehem, lived in Judea, was crucified for my sins, and rose from the dead to bring me new life with Him in heaven. God didn’t feel “pressure” when it came to giving us the Perfect Gift. He knew this was the only way to bring life and salvation to a fallen world.

During this last week before Christmas, take a minute to go to the LWML website and read God’s Perfect Gift in your personal devotion time. Allow the words to remove any pressure you feel. Trust that the most perfect gift came into the world over 2000 years ago and is still the Perfect Gift — Jesus Christ, the Light of the World.
