Sermon Illustration about Gifts

"Thanks for the harmonica you gave me for Christmas," Johnny said to his Uncle Rodney the first time he saw him after the holidays. "It's the best Christmas present I ever got."

"That's great," said Uncle Rodney. "Do you know how to play it?"

"Oh, I don't play it," Johnny said. "My mom gives me a dollar a day not to play it during the day, and my dad gives me five dollars a week not to play it at night."
