As I thought some more about it this morning I realized all the experiences of Christmas gifts I have had over the years. There were the years I got exactly what I wanted and I was very happy all day long. There were years I got nothing I wanted and was extremely grouchy all day long. But what of the next day or week? We soon forget about what we got and didn't get and it is life as usual. Christmas is in the past and we move on.
This year I want to focus on the real meaning of Christmas, the one that stays All year round. Jesus was born for us on this day many years ago. It's not about the cool gift we get from our parents or spouses, it's not about the gift we should have received for being good but didn't. It's about celebrating His birth and everything that came after it.
We will still buy the presents that will be forgotten about a week after Christmas and whats a Christmas morning without wrapping paper all over the house? Here is something to remember this Christmas season:
it doesn't cost a lot of money, in fact it's actually free.
You're probably wondering what kind of present can this be?
It's the gift of Salvation, free for you and me.
