Don’t let the expectation of a gift ruin the gift for you. When looking forward to something it would be wise to keep a good perspective on what it is. The descendants of Israel were expecting the savior to come into this kingdom like the kingdoms they could see, not understanding that He came to prepare them for His Kingdom which is eternal. So, the package that you see, like the one in the manger, may be far greater than you know. Appreciate it not just for what it is or what it will be but also for why it was given and you shall experience more satisfaction than with any other gift that you have.
