It is almost Christmas! I’m so very excited that we have the chance to celebrate the birth of our Savior. My wish for everyone is that you will find joy and peace during this season. Here are a few thoughts I want to leave with you as we approach the birth of Christ.
May You Experience God’s Love
This is the time of year where we are reminded of God’s immense love for us. I hope that you see His love in your life through your family, friends or strangers.
Maybe Christmas Means a Little Bit More
One of my favorite movies to watch during this time of year is The Grinch. The Grinch finds a different meaning for Christmas than the presents. Once he snatched all of the gifts from the town, Christmas came anyways. What a thought provoking line from a kid’s movie.
Christmas is the True Expression of Love
Not only does God express His love to us, but Christmas is the perfect time for us to show love to others. It is a time when we can give to those that are less fortunate. Also, it is a time for us to show love to those that mean most to us.
It is Better to Give Than Get
It is a bit counter cultural to say that it is better to give a present than to receive one. We see commercials all the time that talk about buying presents for everyone, including yourself. Paul tells us in Acts 20:35 to remember the words Jesus spoke, “It is more blessed to give than to receive”.
Merry Christmas to You and Your Family
I hope that you all have a wonderful day with your family. Merry Christmas and Happy New Years.
