Christmas

04 Dec

Christmas Day will soon be here. Twenty-three days to go. During this season we should be celebrating the birth of our Lord. However, the reason for the season has changed to a promotion for Santa Claus and a big money-maker for the retail stores to turn a profit in which bottom line figures turn to black from red. Where is the telling of the birth of Jesus?

One day an individual and I had a conversation about Christmas. She did not like Christmas, because she could afford to give her children the presents they wanted when they were little because she did not have the money. I could relate to not having the money to get my children all the gifts they wanted. I shared with her the reason for Christmas. Christmas is not about Santa Claus, it is about the birth of Jesus. God sent his son in human form so we would have the right to salvation. Christmas is not about the gifts it is about Christ. Yes, I sing “Santa Claus is coming to town”, but I tell my children the gifts that they are getting are from the Lord. He has provided us with the money to purchase you the gifts that you have received. Long story short, her reply was I wish I knew that when her children was smaller.

As we get closer to our Christian Holiday “Christmas”, may we remember the reason for the season.

Be Blessed!
