A friend of mine once told me a story of a time when she decided to be a “Secret Santa” at her office. She secretly placed gifts on her coworkers desk. A few days later she overheard another coworker take credit for the little presents…can you believe it? My mouth dropped open when I heard the story. Who would do that? And how can they think they won’t get caught? What if the rightful gift deliverer said she did it?
That is a story that I’ll remember for the rest of my life! And I think it’s what we do to God all of the time. We look at our successes or accomplishments and think we actually can take credit for it. The reality is that it’s all God. And I imagine that when we stand in heaven someday we’ll look pretty silly for taking credit for an almighty God.
So, this holiday season, maybe your gift to our Savior is to simply give Him the credit for the blessings in your life. He’s the ulitmate Secret Santa.
