In the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas”, if you added up all of the presents given, you would find that the total number of presents is 364.
Not including Christmas, that would be the equivalent of one present for every remaining day of the year.
Could this be coincidence???
Possibly. But why 364? What is the missing Christmas gift?
Because maybe… just maybe… the writer of the song knew that the greatest gift that was reserved for this Holy Day was the Child, wrapped in cloth and lying in a manger… the gift of Salvation to all men from the God of the universe.
Make it a point during this Christmas Season, no matter how busy we may get filling our shopping carts with gifts, to not forget the Greatest Gift…. Jesus.
And from our family at Abba’s House to yours… Merry Christmas!!!
P.S. If you happen to be in Chattanooga on Christmas Eve, I would like to personally invite you to join us at Abba’s House for our Christmas Eve Traditions service. It begins at 5p.m., lasts an hour, and includes carol singing, a brief message, and communion. I hope you will join us.
