The Little Drummer Boy

First off, we would like to wish you a Very Merry Christmas from our HCC family to yours. With that said, let me get my favorite Christmas Carol stuck in your head today, “The Little Drummer Boy”.  The Little Drummer Boy” is a popular Christmas song written in 1941. It was originally known as “Carol of the Drum” and is based on a traditional Czech carol. Although there isn’t any reference to a drummer boy in the Christmas story in Matthew 1–2 and Luke 2, the point of the carol goes straight to the heart of the meaning of worship. The carol describes how a boy is summoned by the Magi to the scene of Christ’s birth. Unlike the wise men, however, the drummer has no gift—so he gives what he has. He plays his drum, saying, “I played my best for Him.”
 All the drummer boy had was his drum, but the God he worshiped was worthy of his all. He is worthy of our all as well, having given His all for us.
