Remember the Reason for the Christmas Celebrations

Remember the Reason for the Christmas Celebrations

Spread the love

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.   James 1:17 (NIV)

Christmas is just around the corner and many of you are busy buying gifts and making preparations for holiday dinners and parties.

  Let us not forget the reason for the season.

 Giving and receiving gifts is wonderful. Who doesn’t like to receive gifts? And if you’re a giver, you enjoy blessing others with presents. Just don’t get caught up in the frenzy of gift giving that you forget that the greatest gift is from above.

Many times demonstrating love and compassion is a much better gift than one wrapped in red paper. When we show tenderness and kindness, we are imitating our Father, who is the epitome of love and compassion. When our Daddy gives gifts from above, they are good and perfect.

 May you have a blessed and loving Christmas season.
