"The True Meaning of Christmas"
With the most popular holiday just around the corner, it seems like everyone is trying to get into the Christmas spirit. Stores line their aisles with Christmas goodies and decor, TV shows have switched to the theme of giving and love, and Santas are starting to pop up everywhere. And why shouldn't they? After all, it is that time of year. It’s the meaning of the season. Right?
Yet, the very first Christmas seemed to do without all of these. The very first Christmas somehow started a frenzy without the power of TV, without Candy Canes, without Santa, and without Christmas sales. Even more amazingly, the very first Christmas involved a poor couple, nobodies, who would lay the most precious child of all in a manger.
Looking back on Black Friday, I am constantly reminded how far we have come from the true meaning of Christmas. Christmas wasn't just about giving or feeling loved, but it was about true love. Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ, the Savior who came into this world to die... for everyone, even those who killed him.
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2:14
This Christmas Season, let us remember the true meaning of Christmas...for the Savior has come to give us the greatest gift of all. LOVE!
Merry Christmas & Many Blessings!
