Revelation 5:13 ” And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.”
There are many types of gift givers. There’s the Practical Giver. The person that gives gifts that are needed and things that will be used. T-Shirts, socks and the like. The Gag Giver. The crazy person that always gives gifts that are funny, jokes or little knick knacks. The Simple Giver. This person just cuts to the chase and gives gifts of gift cards, checks or cold hard cash. Then there is the Perfect Giver. They always give the perfect present every time. It’s like they just know what you want or like. Regardless, what can we give Jesus? He has so much. He is perfect. He is Jesus. But here are some things we can give Jesus.
