cJoshua1:5

When you think its bad, look around…

I came across this article today and I can’t really relay the perspective it placed in my heart for how things can be so much better from where I stand if I just look around at other people’s problems.

12 Days of CHRISTmas

Posted by cjoshua15 on December 18, 2007

Okay.  The I’m late on the countdown.  Here is something I thought you might enjoy to explain the song.  It takes on a whole new light in the Christian world.

The song goes, “On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…”  The “true love” represents God and the “me” who receives these presents is the Christian. 

The “partridge in a pear tree” was Jesus Christ who died on a tree as a gift from God.

The “two turtle doves” were the Old and New Testaments – another gift from God.

The “three French hens” were faith hope and love – the three gifts of the Spirit that abide(I Corinthians 13).

The “four calling birds” were the four Gospels which sing the song of salvation through Jesus Christ.

The “five golden rings” were the first five books of the Bible also called the “Books of Moses.”

The “six geese a-laying” were the six days of creation.

The “seven swans a swimming” were “seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.”(I Corinthians 12:8-11, Romans 12, Ephesians 4, 1 Peter 4:10-11)

The “eight maids a milking” were the eight beatitudes.

The “nine ladies dancing” were nine fruits of the Holy Spirit.  (Galatians 5:22-23)

The “ten lords a-leaping” were the Ten Commandments.

The “eleven pipers piping” were the eleven faithful disciples.

The “twelve drummers drumming” were the twelve points of the Apostles’ Creed.

The next time you hear this song you will hear it for the first time with your eyes upon the Lord and all that He does for us.
