The Christmas season has just come to a close and as I reflect back I am reminded of a devotion I read pertaining to a very popular Christmas song, “The Little Drummer Boy.” The devotion explained how although there isn’t any reference to a drummer boy in the Christmas story in Matthew 1-2 and Luke 2, the point of the carol goes straight to the heart of the meaning of worship. A young boy being summoned to the scene of Christ’s birth realizes he has no gift to present the newborn King. So the young boy gives what he has. He plays his drum, saying, “I played my best for Him.”
So to honor Him…when we come.
I played my best for Him…
Then He smiled at me…me and my drum.
