While many gifts aren’t truly needed, we do have needs, though we might feel uncomfortable admitting that. From a biblical perspective, we all have a need. In fact, it’s the same need. But we might struggle to admit that as well. Do I really need a savior? Surely, I’m not that bad?
Every year at Advent, we are asked to make room for our Savior. Whether we welcome him or not is a matter of recognizing our need.
