A father was trying to teach his six-year-old son how to shoot a basketball. They were out in the backyard.
The father shot a couple of times, saying, “Do it just like that, son. It’s real easy.” The little boy tried very hard but he couldn’t get the ball ten feet into the air.
The little fellow got more and more frustrated. Finally, after hearing his father talk about how easy it was for the tenth time, the boy said, “It’s easy for you up there. You don’t know how hard it is from down here!”
You and I can never say that about God. When Jesus became man and lived among us, he walked where we walked, he suffered what we suffer, he was tempted as we are tempted. He was Emmanuel which means “God is with us.”

When was the last time YOU told God how hard it is for YOU down here with all the things going on in YOUR life?
THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT IS TO REALIZE HOW MUCH YOU ALREADY HAVE FROM GOD!
