Christmas is coming and we are all rushing to get gifts for our family and our friends. Personally I never really know what to give. On the first Christmas the wise men brought gifts to our Lord, maybe I can draw inspiration there? The gifts were gold, frankincense and myrrh. Myrrh is basically perfume, not a very good gift for Christmas except maybe for my mother. Incense today is kind of a cheap gift. Gold, giving money or a gift certificate is not bad but at the same time I would like to give something more personal. Actually that’s the point of the gifts of the Wise Men; they represented the nature of Christ: the gold for his kinghood, the frankincense for his priesthood and the myrrh for his Death and Resurrection. A wise gift would be something that represents the person you are giving it to. This Christmas try to find meaningful gifts for your friends and family. Something that shows that you know and understand them.
