Day 7: The Empty Stocking

What gift will you give JESUS in HIS stocking?

The wise men came with gifts.

"Our finest gifts we bring pa-rum pum pum pum To lay before the KING pa-rum pum pum pum"

But what did The Little Drummer Boy have?

"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 our KING pa- rum pum pum pum"

The Little Drummer boy, so wanting to bring The Little BABY something,

but was "just" a poor boy with "just" a drum.

What did he have to give that would be fit for


Do you think like the Little Drummer Boy thinks~

What can I give to a KING because I am "just" a or have "just" a?

But then you look down and see that you have a drum and

you know how to pa-rum pum pum pum.

Maybe this would be good enough.

Maybe I would be good enough.

“Shall I play for you on my drum”, the Little Drummer Boy asks.

And I bet he wasn’t ready for the response he received..

Mary nodded.

Mary said yes.

Even though all he had was a drum.

And he played his best for


And then they smiled at him.

And then the word

COME gets louder.

Just COME as you are

with whatever you have


whoever you may or not be.

COME to the BABY who whispers your name


"Then HE smiled at me pa-rum pum pum pum" Me and my ___________!

How will you fill in the blank?


"COME they told me pa-rum pum pum pum"



Who wants to be your KING


Give HIM your heart~

Not only so THE BABY'S stocking isn't empty,

but so yours will be filled!

"Come and listen, all you who fear GOD; let me tell you what he has done for me. I cried out to HIM with my mouth; HIS praise was on my tongue. If I had cherished sin in my heart, the LORD would not have listened; but GOD has surely listened and heard my voice in prayer. Praise be to GOD, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld HIS love from me!" (Psalm 66:16-20)
