The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, that one may turn away from the snares of death. Proverbs 13:14Well it is finally here. Christmas. The long awaited day when many are so frazzled they just take a deep breath and say "thank goodness". We know the familiar story of the Christ child's birth in a manger in Bethlehem and the wise men who came bearing gifts for Him. This was the most important child born,ever. Today is His birthday and a day to remember just what this day signifies.In the hustle of this day many forget what it is all about. It is not just for a big family reunion although that is nice. It is not about Santa Claus for sure. It is not about ice skating or Christmas movies or eating too much. It is about a baby born in a manger who came to save us from our sins. The world would never be the same.Are you prepared to meet Jesus and is He important to you or just a historical figure? Many who say they know Him do not 'seek him diligently' and or have a passion for the things of the Lord. Why not use this Christmas to reexamine your heart and make sure you are 'all in' for the King of kings and Lord of lords.PRAYER: Many say this is their favorite time of year while for others this time brings pain and sorrow. Help me today stop and really think what this day is all about. In Jesus' name. Amen. Oh by the way....Happy Birthday Jesus!
