A dear friend, Mary Katherine, recited this anonymous poem to me by heart. Initially it appeared as a Scottish poem, and then began in 1578 to be included in the preliminary material of most Geneva Bibles.
Here is the spring where waters flow,
To quench our heart of sin;
Here is the tree where truth doth grow
To lead our lives therein;
The first Christmas was announced with great joy. Emmanuel was coming into the world!
We were created for this joy—the joy of knowing God and experiencing his presence. Why not give your mother, daughter, sister or friend a Christmas gift that increases that joy?
The Good Portion: Scripture will cause you to see the treasure that is God’s word and to savor its sweetness.
The Good Portion: God will open your eyes to God’s glory and lead you to rejoice in his goodness.
Curl up with a good book this Christmas and give a gift that keeps on giving joy.
