• Matthew 2:11: Notice here that gifts are presented to Jesus ... a practice that can be done today!

  • Everything on this earth belongs to GOD. We're just borrowing or giving back to GOD what is already His. But that is irrelevant. What matters is if and in the manner you give (back) to GOD.

  • About the wise men who gave baby Jesus gifts:

  • After considering this entire message, stop and realize what gifts the wise men brought Jesus: The wise men brought their VERY BEST, brand new, expensive, unused gifts.

  • Just as Christ gave us the "unspeakable gift" (2 Corinthians 9:15), we owe Him the next very best, treasured gift--our body/soul.

  • If Y2K was supposed to be the end of the world for many, then why not be in church??

  • You can't change the past. Therefore, don't look back on what you didn't give but look forward to what gifts you will give next year ... and the quality of them.
