Giving God Our Best!

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.”

Come they told me…
A new-born King to see…
Our finest gifts we bring…
To lay before the King…

So to honor Him…when we come.

Little baby…
I am a poor boy too…
I have no gift to bring…
That’s fit to give a King…
Shall I play for You…on my drum
Mary nodded…
The ox and lamb kept time…
I played my drum for Him…

I played my best for Him…

Then He smiled at me…me and my drum.

Are you giving your best to Jesus as you worship Him? You may feel you have nothing to offer Him. When we worship Christ we should empty ourselves and give Him our very best. Pray and ask God to show you how you can worship Him more.
