The Reason for the Season

Although it's fun to decorate and dress up and go to parties and to give presents... it's also a time to reflect on the Reason for the season... that being the birth of Jesus Christ- the Hero, the Savior to this earth. 

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them,
“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel,
praising God and saying,
  “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
   and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
{Luke 2: 8-14}
Our Hope

Let us remember the Master that we serve. Yes, He gives us innumberable blessings: the home, the car, the money to buy presents, the winter air, the heater, the stockings and christmas tree... but God has given us something Greater... Himself.

So, let's keep our eyes focused on HIM throughout the year, and give special thanks to him during the holidays. Give Him the best gift...

In His Love,
