One of my favorite Christmas songs is “The Little Drummer Boy.” At the end of this blog, I am including a video to one of my favorite versions of this song.
There is a stanza in this classic song that I can especially relate to. It is this:
“Baby Jesus, pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum
That’s fit to give the King, pa rum pum pum pum”
Sometimes I feel like a lost soul who has nothing to give. What could I possibly offer to my King and Savior that is fit for him?
Give Him myself? My imperfect, flawed self?
Give Him all that is within me, the good, the bad and the ugly?
It just doesn’t seem right. If I were a King, would I want the whole of me?
It’s when I look through my human eyes that I don’t see worth. But I am so grateful that Jesus doesn’t view me this way. He sees me through the loving eyes of my Heavenly Father.
And in His eyes, I am of great worth. My life is a gift to Him.
