As all the hustle and bustle of the Holiday Season comes to an end, it’s time for us to sit back and reflect upon the true meaning of Christmas. For a moment, think about the humble beginning of the birth our Savior Jesus Christ. We know the song “Away in a Manger” and we certainly can sing “O Holy Night”. But rather than simply reciting those words, we should truly dig into our hearts and remember that Christ was born to save our Souls.
This time of year we give gifts and exchange pleasantries. We try to be kind and nice and generous. We feel warmth towards others and indulge in the spirit of being joyful. But Christmas comes and Christmas goes. And all too often, we forget about all the goodness in our lives.
I think Norman Wesley Brooks said it best in:
Let Every Day Be Christmas
Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
Peace on Earth, good will to men,
Remember too the Christ-child, grew up to be a man;
Merry Christmas today and throughout the year!
