"GOD'S GREAT GIFT"

The Christmas season brings to us gifts innumerable, but the greatest gift of all is that bestowed by God, the great Giver. We are reminded of this fact by our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, who says in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 262), "Christmas to me is the reminder of God's great gift,—His spiritual idea, man and the universe,—a gift which so transcends mortal, material, sensual giving that the merriment, mad ambition, rivalry, and ritual of our common Christmas seem a human mockery in mimicry of the real worship in commemoration of Christ's coming."

The understanding that man is the spiritual idea of God is the most precious gift ever given. It brings to us the blessings of true being, unfolds Love's sweet influences, and reveals the jewels of character reflected from perfect Mind and manifest in the perfect man.
