Matthew 2:11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
During this time of year the shops and stores are full of people filling the "wish lists" of their loved ones. Giving gifts at Christmas has been a tradition ever since the wise men followed the star to find Jesus.
Their gifts were very meaningful. The Gold was representative of his royalty as King of Kings. The frankincense was representative of his Deity, Immanuel, God with us. The myrrh was to represent his impending death for our sins.
How meaningful are the gifts that you will be giving this year. I want to use the next few devotionals discussing meaningful gifts that we as believers can give. I hope you receive a blessing from them.
Please feel free to contact me by email at

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know. Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
