Finding Joy This Christmas Season
We get so caught up in the cares of this world, in the pain that we are feeling in the moment, that we forget to be grateful for the most amazing gift that has ever been given to us. A gift we don't deserve and that is better than anything we could ever imagine.
We get so wrapped up in gifts, in the traditions that we have made on earth, that we start to forget what Christmas is really about.
Christmas is about God's son coming to earth. He was born in a humble place for us. He lived to die, to take away our sins.
This year, as we struggle with health, finances, or whatever may be on our minds, let us put our focus on him.
This year, instead of thinking of the gifts or the pressure surrounding Christmas, let us find the light and joy of the season. Let us be thankful for the greatest gift ever.
And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.
1 John 4:14
