It’s a day before Christmas and it’s mad dash to finish up last minute preparations. Buying those last minute presents and maxing out your credit cards. Is this the real meaning of Christmas? Is it about material wealth? All too often people just ignore the real meaning of Christmas. It is about the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We think about our troubles and don’t see what really happened when Jesus was born. His country was occupied by a foreign power. They killed whoever didn’t obey their rules. Jesus was hunted by the authorities to kill Him, even as a child. He had to live incognito for most of His life. But this was the plan of God for Jesus and mankind. When we share with our families the Christmas food and fellowship, let us also share our faith in the Creator of all this, Jesus. I hope and pray that everyone has a blessed Christmas day and New Year. Crain.
