Soul Food for Friday: Our Greatest Need

This week’s Soul Food for Friday is a Christmas classic whose source is unknown, but has been used by Chuck Swindoll, Max Lucado and myself (probably the only way I’m included in the same list with them). It’s entitled Our Greatest Need and reminds us not only of the baby of Bethlehem’s manger, but why we needed Him to come and still come into our hearts today.

If our greatest need had been information,

God would have sent us an educator;

If our greatest need had been technology,

God would have sent us a scientist;

If our greatest need had been money,

God would have sent us an economist;

If our greatest need had been pleasure,

God would have sent us an entertainer;

But our greatest need was forgiveness,

so God sent us a Savior.

So what great need do you need God to meet this Christmas?
