And when any will offer a meat offering to the LORD, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil on it…
It was Christmas morning. The door-bell rang, and two young girls were ushered into the study. One of them was about eight years old, and the other ten. After the usual Christmas salutations, the elder of them said, "We have come to make Christ a Christmas present." "Have you?" I asked. "Well, what are you going to give Him?" "We are going to give Him our hearts," she said. After conversing with them awhile, I found this was no mere childish freak, but a serious purpose. We then kneeled together in prayer, closing with a formal dedication of those young hearts to Him who was God's great Christmas Gift to mankind. From that time those children lived the lives of Christians, and not long after, at the communion-table, they sealed the vow they made that bright Christmas morning. They are faithful Christian women now.
