It is sad, there are only a few weeks out of the year that we all treat others with kindness and compassion. There is that “Spirit” during the Christmas Holiday that enters the minds and hearts of children and adult alike.
Never forget the story about Christmas in “no mans land” in World War one even in Part two where enemies stopped shooting at one another and joined together in “Silent Night.” This season can bring the worse out of people (can you say Tickle me Elmo doll). It is famous for softening the heart and and the transformation of Scrooges everywhere.
The birthday of Jesus actually shows us that this spirit and attitude could/should carry though, all year long. God gave us a gift ..”For God so loved the world that He gave…” This Christ child in the manger came to live and die for the sins of the world. “God demonstrated His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us”. For the believer and follower of Jesus Christ every day is Easter and Christmas 24/7!!
We’ve heard of Christmas in July. Don’t let the light this season brings, flicker out. let’s celebrate it all year long. Maybe I or a church group, even an office at work can wrap and give someone gifts throughout the year. (E mail me in August and wish me a Merry Christmas). Love God. Love Others.
GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST AND PEACE ON EARTH !
