Today was the Feast of the Epiphany. Among other things it commemorates the visit of the Magi to the Christ child. The gifts they brought as everyone knows were Gold, Frankincense and myrrh. Gold was the gift appropriate for a King, Frankincense a gift for a priest and Myrrh the gift for death.

With the idea of gifts I watched the movie The Ultimate Gift. Some people have criticized the movie as being overly sentimental. I don’t care, I still like the movie and teared up several times throughout. The movie’s title is not absolutely correct….THE ULTIMATE GIFT was God giving His son to the world and then the son (Jesus) giving His ife for all of us.

My prayer is that everyone receives the Gift of Christ. The gift of knowing He is Our Savior, the gift of His forgiveness and Love.
