Give Christmas Real Meaning!

Christmas has become extremely commercialized. Everywhere we look we see Christmas trees, lights, presents, signs enticing us to buy this or that for the people on our lists. But let's try to keep our thoughts focused on the real meaning of the season.

When we see a wreath,

let's remember that God's love is never ending.

When we see the lights,

let's remember that Jesus is the light of the world.

When we see candles,

let's remember that our lights, however small, shine brightly enough to spread to those around us.

When we see presents,

let's remember that God gave us the greatest gift of all in His Son, Jesus Christ.

When we see a Christmas tree,

let's remember a tree on top of a hill called Calvary.

When we see snow,

let's remember the One who cleanses our sins in a way that makes them pure white.

When we sing carols,

let's remember the importance of making a joyful noise unto the Lord.

When we sit down to Christmas dinner,

let's remember that Jesus is the bread of life.

When we see all those around us in need, whether physically, financially, emotionally, or spiritually,

let's remember that Christmas really shouldn't be limited to one season of the year.

God's gift was for all seasons. And, every time we share that gift, it's Christmas

Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!

2 Corinthians 9:15
