This video tells the story of an old teddy bear who believes his only chance of being loved and accepted is by wrapping himself up in wrapping paper to hide his faults and flaws. But when this does happen, his fear of being discovered makes him even more fearful.
To the bear’s amazement when the present is opened the child loves what he finds. With his father they repair, wash and care for the teddy bear.
Just like that teddy bear we may feel we need to hide from God because of our guilt or shame. But wonderfully even though he knows what each one of us is like God still came to find us. And despite our mess and sin he loved us enough to restore us and clean us. What wonderful Christmas news.
