A friend was going through some boxes in her attic and came across an old Cabbage Patch Kid doll that had once belonged to her daughter. Anyone remember those dolls?
In 1983, a toy company called Coleco introduced the doll and they sold like hotcakes. There was something unique that made them popular. No two dolls were said to be alike, and each came with their own birth certificate and adoption papers. It was THE gift every kid wanted that year for Christmas.
Unfortunately, Coleco had no idea they would become the big rage, and there were shortages nationwide. People camped out at stores overnight, hoping they would have a chance to purchase one of the dolls. Sadly, thousands of disappointed parents left empty-handed.
But now this once highly-sought-after gift, sat neglected and unused in an old cardboard box. The doll had gone out of fashion and out of style.
But as Christ-followers, we are given gifts that never grow out of style. You’ll never walk away disappointed and empty-handed when it comes to these gifts. I’m referring to spiritual gifts that God grants us.
