Giving a child a gift is a special time. Giving them the gift of love is something we should do all the time. Giving a child a gift of a story about the love of God is something that will touch them at a deeper level. Mary and Joseph's love for their child was also a love for their Saviour. And we can love Jesus only because he first loved us. He loved us enough to come as a child at Christmas time and as our Saviour at any time.
