Today's Word


12/12/2018


We have been looking at preparation for Christmas. Much of it involves decorations and other things particularly meant to be seen. You have probably seen videos and news casts that show houses lit up like airports and flash to the beat of a particular song. All of this is just part of the fun and festivities.

 

We also need to remember that not everything may work out or continue to function perfectly - why can't we get tree lights that will last more than a few days, I just cannot find the perfect gift, some of the folks cannot make it home for Christmas, I just burned half of the Christmas dinner, someone in the family has to work Christmas Day, etc. We do not make light of any of these scenarios as we know Christmas is special to many of us. It is often the one time of year when families can get together.

 

But we should remember that so much of it is the external. We know the true meaning is Jesus. We remember that people are more important than things. When things go wrong we do get frustrated but we do not want to let it ruin our Christmas.

 

Lord help me keep the right focus, to keep my joy when something tries to steal it, and keep my heart right no matter what. I remember that the coming of Jesus was announced as " tidings of great joy which will be to all people". May others see that joy in me this Christmas.
