Whenever I am asked that question, my answer is always Little Drummer Boy.

 

 

Even as a kid I loved that song, and it always seemed like I was one of the few who chose it.  I even remember people asking me why I liked it so much, and I never really had an answer.  I guess I liked how the songwriter incorporated the pa-rum-pum-pum-pum throughout the song…but otherwise I just didn’t know.

Today I heard the song again, and today God brought out the words;

“…then He smiled at me.”

 Whoa.

That’s it!  That’s exactly why I like it, and yet that’s exactly what I didn’t understand so many years ago…that relationship.

Jesus doesn’t want gifts, He wants our heart.

The little drummer boy literally gave Jesus all he had.  His heart when he played his drum and Jesus accepted it with a smile.

Oh, to have Jesus smile when I meet him face to face as we all will one day.  To hear him say;  

“Well done, good and faithful servant…”   Matthew 25:21 

 

Man, I wish I had a drum.
