The Best Gift of All

I know the best gift of all is Jesus, but today I’m talking about earthly gifts.

When I was eleven or twelve we were watching a TV programme when my dad joked that when I was sixteen he would have to buy me a TV otherwise we would fight over the remote. I took it seriously and asked him if he was serious, he said yes. So in the middle of the TV programme I ran upstairs and marked it on my calendar, and every year I reminded my dad that when I was sixteen he would have to buy me a TV, and he kept his promise.

Maybe at that moment it was the best earthly gift I could ever have, but who knows? I might get something better one day.
