This is one gift you need to buy the teen on your list – the Rubik’s Cube.  It hit me like a ton of bricks as to why this gift is the perfect one for that kid that’s between the ages of 13-18, that kid that’s looking for a reason to live, purpose in his/her life, and order and peace in this crazy chaotic world in which we all live.

The Rubik’s Cube. 

I know. It’s been around since you and I were teens, but it’s still there on the shelves of the stores, and it’s still popular!  But there are so many reasons to give your teen this gift, along with this little write-up that you can print to go along with the gift:

The cube pivots in the middle, allowing all of the colors to be mixed up.

All the moving parts can be manipulated but the cube will not fall apart, because of that internal piece.

It was originally advertised as having over 3,000,000,000 combinations but only one solution.

The solution to the Rubik’s cube is through hand movement by a skilled player.

There is a solution, though it may take many many movements of the disorganized color blocks.

At first, it seems impossible to solve, and movements are many…but it’s really just a few easy moves!

This toy is wildly popular for all ages.

The solution is a mathematical formula, it works every time.

Keeping the cube oiled makes it last a long time…

Your life is secure with an inner mechanism as well when you believe – Jesus.

Therefore, all of the moving parts and chaos in your life will not make you fall apart.

There is a solution and purpose for your life, when you let Jesus – the skilled one – handle the pieces.

It might take time, but the disorder will become ordered and the puzzle completed.

It may seem impossible, but remember that internal piece and the hands that hold the external ones together.

There IS a solution…every time…for every misplaced square.

The oil is the Holy Spirit, the one that resides within you, and holds you secure for all time.

You are wonderfully and beautifully made, even if all you see is messed up colors at the moment.

Copy and paste the above and fold the note up with the cube, and then wrap the cube.  Tell those teens that they are loved, that their life may look mixed up but there’s a grand solution when they trust the hands that move the parts and hold them all together!

The toy will serve as a reminder of His faithfulness and ability and  master plan for their life, every time they pick it up to play…

That’s why your teen needs a Rubik’s cube for Christmas.
