Riches are the pettiest and least worthy gifts which God can give a man. What are they to God's Word, to bodily gifts, such as beauty and health; or to the gifts of the mind, such as understanding, skill and wisdom! Yet men toil for them day and night, and take no rest. Therefore God commonly gives riches to foolish people to whom he gives nothing else. Author: Martin Luther


 
I received a gift from my father; who taught me how to drive a car
I received a gift from my mother who dressed my wounds and left no scar
 
I received a gift from my wife who gave to me her heart
The gift I received from my children was the love they did impart
 
Yes, I have received material gifts such as a new cellphone or TV
But these gifts are temporary gifts and do not mean as much to me
 
The gift I received from God was a life itself to live
And when I fail he understands and is always ready to forgive
This is the most valuable gift that anyone could give
 
We all can share in this wonderful gift which is an offering from on high
He loved us all so much he gave his son who came to witness and to die
 
A gift that echoes through my heart was one he cried out from the cross
“Father, forgive them?” he cried out. “Guide them for they are lost”
 
When we accept Jesus into our hearts he carries away our sins
So join us in our fellowship and let the Holy Spirit in
 
Some gifts you cannot put a price on for they are indeed priceless
For without the Lord Jesus our souls are weak and powerless
 
I received a gift from my father; who taught me how to drive a car
I received a gift from my mother who dressed my wounds and left no scar
These gifts were indeed from them but also gifts from my Lord and savior
Who teaches me and walks with me and forgives my bad misbehavior
 
Amen
