Christmas Gifts Always Relate to Jesus Christ

Our gift to the children for Christmas 2010 was a music box with 3 pictures: #1. a box with a pearl in it #2. us, Mom and Dad #3. our Grand River Branch building. Each box played the music How Great Thou Art or Amazing Grace.
In the box was a token pearl like in the picture with the story of a man who had found a precious pearl. When he put it on display for people to see, he saw that they looked at the box more than the pearl. He was so disappointed. The message to our family is that it is not about the kind of building we are meeting in at the Grand River Branch (the box - whether awesome and beautiful or plain and not so beautiful), it is about what is inside, the Pearl of Great Price, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
