A few years ago, when I was still single, I found myself after Christmas reflecting on the holiday season. I have to tell you, I wasn’t happy with what I found.
I had scuffled and scurried, hurrying to this party and that sale right up to Christmas Day, without ever taking the time to stop and think about Jesus and His birth, and what an awesome reason we have to celebrate. I was ashamed of myself and regretted missing out on the opportunity to worship and commune with God during those days.
I did learn from it, but I felt cheated out of any real sense of celebration that year. Don’t forget to take time to really think about what Christmas really means to all of us each day.
Take time to think about what it really means that Jesus left His father’s side to come and dwell here with us and to offer us redemption. “Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!” 2 Corinthians 9:15
