Lessons of Love and Giving at Christmas
This month is full of activities. Most people have an expectation of what Christmas should look llike, feel like, smell like. Often those expectations fall short; especially for families who have been fractured or suffered loss. Memories can bring tears instead of smiles. Let's challenge one another to be compassionate and cooperative during this time.
The season is not so much about the "stuff" but really all about the Christ child who came so long ago and will one day return. Children need to hear this story, believe Jesus is a faithful friend and Savior, and reach out to others in need. December is the perfect month to slow down long enough to be loving and demonstrate giving, no matter how busy we are.
Luke 2:11 NIV Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
