Don't let rush take your mind off gift for Christ

The world, nation and Tennessee are rushing around in the last few hours before Christmas Eve to buy things people probably don't need and food that probably won't be fully eaten.

Meanwhile, we've taken little time to consider what we need to give to the creator of our celebration: Jesus Christ.

For a possibility of what you might give, consider this English hymn and the final verse of "In the Bleak Midwinter". After "Silent Night", it is my favorite carol:

What can I give Him,
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb,
If I were a wise man
I would do my part,
Yet what I can I give Him,
Give my heart.
