There are some gifts that everyone needs but no one gets too excited about. Before the gift is opened,
your expectations are high, but once you take off the wrapping your excitement turns to disappointment.
Instead of the gift that you had been hoping for, you find socks and underwear—a gift that you really
need, but it is not the one you were hoping for. This is true of the first Christmas, because Jesus is the gift
that everyone needs, but He wasn’t the gift that everyone wanted.
