A little boy's attempts to give Jesus a gift teaches him the truth that what he does for others, he does for Jesus.

When Ronnie Wilson learns about the amazing gift of salvation that Jesus gave him, he wants to give Jesus a gift in return. But how can he get it to heaven? And what does he have to give? He decides on his prized baseball glove, signed by a professional baseball player. With $6.47 from his piggy bank Ronnie sets out to get the glove to heaven, but at each turn Ronnie's plan seems thwarted. However, as a result his path crosses with some very needy people, who Ronnie is able to help.

At the end of the day, Ronnie prays to Jesus and tells Him he tried to get his glove to Him. That night he dreams that Jesus thanks him for his gift and explains that feeding the homeless man, spending time with a lonely friend, and giving a balloon to a girl who can't afford one, were all gifts to Jesus and quotes Matthew 25:40:

'And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'

When Ronnie wakes up, he takes his glove to someone who always wanted to play baseball but didn't have his own glove, and that night he prays, 'Dear Jesus, I hope you liked the glove.'

This is a delightfully illustrated book by best-selling author Francis Chan with a wonderful lesson that will teach your children about the joy of giving selflessly to others and simultaneously giving to Jesus.

Meet the Author

Francis Chan

Francis Chan (born 1967) is the former founding pastor and teaching pastor of Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley, California. After being raised by his Buddhist grandmother in Hong Kong, Francis came to America at the age of five. His mother, stepmother and father all tragically died before his 13th birthday. Francis came to know the Lord in high school and in 1994 he and his wife Lisa started Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley. From just 30 original attendees, Cornerstone grew to 1,600 members by 2000. Francis stepped down from his role at Cornerstone in 2010 - by which time the church had 4,000 regular attendees. He believed God was calling him and his wife to take a 'step of faith' to launch a new ministry as an extension of Cornerstone Church, in a large city in America. Since 2011, Chan has concentrated his church planting efforts on San Francisco, where he has been involved in Abundant Life Christian Fellowship, a multiethnic, non-denominational evangelical church.

At Cornerstone Francis started up diverse and influential ministries including Cornerstone Television and Eternity Bible College (from 2004). He has been a highly sought-after speaker at many Christian colleges and youth conferences in the US and internationally. His commitment is to teach directly from the Bible and his passion is to see the next generation of American Christians display a much deeper love for Jesus.

Francis is committed to radical gospel-centred generosity in relation to his own finances. He gives away the majority of his income to charities, including the royalties from sales of his books and training resources. He is on the board of directors for Children's Hunger Fund and World Impact. Francis has used astute investments in restaurants and real estate to finance his own mission outreach efforts.

Francis is the best-selling author of several books, teaching DVDs and study guides. His book Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God has topped a million sales since its release in 2009, and all the proceeds are donated to charity. With an authentic message, a radical call to true faith and a dare to fall head over heels in love with God, Crazy Love's challenge has resonated in hearts of all ages.

Francis and his wife Lisa, have seven children, and live in San Francisco.
