Everyone is busy. People are decorating and baking. Many are spending time and money they may not really have, buying gifts big and small. People send cards to update their family activities and accomplishments. It is nice to catch up with loved ones, but where is Christmas? Where is the credit to God for what we have?
I cannot help but wonder: is the true meaning of Christmas being honoured? Are we celebrating and sharing it with others in these activities? Are we celebrating Christ’s birth and the reason for it? Are we giving proper credit to God?
These are questions that I struggle with, because Christmas is in reality all about the birth of Jesus. This is the true purpose of the holiday. It is about God’s love for us, given to us through the birth of Christ. We are meant to share that peace, hope, and love.
I posted this video last year, and I share it with you here. Merry Christmas.
