"The Reason for the Season"
We’re down to the final two weeks before Christmas and we have so much yet to do! Baking, buying and decorating yet to be done. How many trips are still to be made to the grocery, the mall, or that favorite little place where you can find something unusual for that special loved one?
In the middle of it all, some of us are looking back remembering loved ones who are no longer with us. Others are looking forward with great anticipation to spending time with yet unborn grandchildren. We’re all working hard to find the time to see family and friends who live far away, or just down the street.
We’re wondering if there is enough time to do all we hope to do. We’re wondering where the time goes, where the money goes, where the reason for the season gets lost in it all. And that, my friends, is what I want to remind us of.
It is the birth of the Christ Child that we celebrate. All that goes into our Christmas celebrations is nice. I’m fine with family and friends gathering. I’m fine with exchanging gifts, sharing meals, and stories from the past. But, most importantly, we celebrate the most important event in history, God’s gift to mankind, His only Son, Jesus the Christ.
In these busy days until Christmas Day, please take just a moment or two everyday to offer a prayer of thanks and praise to the promised One, the Messiah the King of Kings, the Savior who came to us as a tiny baby that we might have life. His name is JESUS. He is the Savior of the world.
See Ya Sunday,
