Overwhelming: How Like God

Jesus was a baby, a material gift. We do not celebrate Christmas by trying to back-pedal away from the world of material things. … The story includes the world, and everything in it. He came to make His blessings flow, far as the curse is found. ~Douglas Wilson, God Rest Ye Merry, p33

My wife and I tend to overgift to our kids at Christmas. We laugh and feel foolish when a kid is so distracted with one toy that we must force them into opening the next, or when something grand goes completely unnoticed in a corner. How consumerist, right? How crassly American. How like God. ~N.D. Wilson, Death by Living, p108
