The Meaning Of Christmas

 Let each one not seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.  1 Corinthians 10:24 (KJV)

Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Jesus who came to set us free from sin and death. But it is much more. It is not Santa Claus, bright lights,  mistletoe, Christmas movies, fattening food, parties, family gatherings and office parties. It is about love, sharing, and giving. But this feeling of Christmas and the actions thereof should not cease on 1 January but should continue throughout 2017.

Look around you and it is not hard to see someone less fortunate. At Christmas these down and out souls are brought to the forefront more than ever when in fact hurting people are not in need of a Christmas meal and box of toys for their children but need things around the clock just like you and I do. Many need a friend, a hug, a smile, a kind word. 

My challenge to each of you reading this today is to find ways you can continue the Christmas spirit each and every day and not when the calendar indicates it is time to have Christmas cheer. Pray and ask God to open your eyes to the needs of those around you and lead you to where you might help. 

PRAYER: Christmas is so nice to celebrate your birth Lord but I want Christmas to continue all throughout the year. Use me Lord to shine your light and share your love. In Jesus' name. Amen.
