Surprise is an important part of all the joy that goes around at Christmas time. That’s why we so love to wrap things up, keep it a secret until Christmas morning. How triumphant we are about finding a gift for someone that would be such a “surprise” for them. We can’t wait to see the expression on their face!
The first Christmas Gift was certainly quite the surprise. Picture it: God looking down on the shepherds, who are commenting on their dreary, boring life. He rubs His hands together and says: “Just wait til they see what I have for them tonight!”
