Pastor: (Opens 3rd box) There’s toothpaste, gum, Band-Aids, cough drops, tissues, duct tape…
Gabby! I think you’d better explain this one.
Gabby: Okay! Well, I heard you talking about outreach and care so I put together a care package filled with good stuff…toothpaste, gum, Band-Aids and even duct tape….you just gotta have duct tape for all those little repairs.
Pastor: Well, Gabby you’re right…a care package would be good for Lazarus House (our local homeless shelter) or the Food Pantry. That about covers it, huh Gabby?
Gabby: What about the 4th gift?
Pastor: Gabby, there were only 3 Gifts of the Magi, not 4. Besides, there aren’t any more boxes left. And what would the 4th gift be?
Gabby: Wait right here, I’ll be right back (Gabby disappears)
Pastor: I can’t imagine what Gabby is talking about…a 4th gift?
Gabby: (returns wearing ribbons or stick on bows all over her & sitting quietly)
Pastor: Gabby….what’s the 4th gift?
Gabby: The Gift of Gab…..ME. I’m the 4th gift. You see Pastor….I don’t have any money and I know how important that is for our church to fix and repair and expand and do all that stuff. So, instead….I’m giving ME. I can help you explain stuff to kids; and I can make people laugh a little especially with my “bald jokes” and I’ve got lots more of them just waiting to sneak out.
I love God and I love our church so is it okay if I give my small little self to God and to Grace Church?
Pastor: You know Gabby. You’ve got the message. The greatest gift of all was God’s Son, Jesus for
us ….all of your gifts ARE important, Gabby. The care package we can send to Lazarus House, the baby powder we can put downstairs in the nursery and the birdseed….well we can put it outside for the birds to eat…their God’s creatures, too. And, as for you, I like having you here with me each Sunday, even with your sneaky bald jokes.
Gabby: All-righty…then….let’s do it Pastor!
Pastor: Let’s do what?
Gabby: Let’s get on with God’s work….spreading His Word! Hiddy Ho…..friends!
