A Prayer for Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Fourth Day of Christmas

O God,

Sometimes we practice regifting. We take a gift we’ve received, rewrap it, and give it to someone else.

On the one hand, maybe regifting reflects a lack of appreciation for the gift. On the other hand, maybe it’s good to give it away in hopes that someone else will appreciate it more and make better use of it.

Help us remember that you give us the gift of your Son with the expectation that we’ll regift it.

Help us remember also that the more we regift the gift of your Son, the more it becomes ours, and the more it becomes ours, the more we can give it away.

And so on ...
