Recapturing the Wonders of Christmas: The Gifts - The Gift of Adoption

The Bible talks multiple times not only about children, but about the wonder and beauty of adoption. There is even an adoption story told in the birth and adoption of Moses, a central figure in the Old Testament. That story alone shows the love and sacrifice of both birth and adoptive parents. It is clear that adoption is dear to the heart of Christ and should be central to the mission of Christians globally. The term adoption is even used as a description of God’s relationship to God’s children. What a wonderful gift from God.

Blessings,
