Christmas has to be one of the most anticipated holidays, especially for kids. All the presents under the lighted Christmas tree; the smells, the carols, and good food on the table. But while we all enjoy the material blessings, the most important Christmas gift is God breaking into history as a human being to save people from their sins. It’s about Jesus born to a virgin in a stable in Bethlehem 2000 years ago. At the heart of Christmas is spiritual awakening where peace, goodwill, and charity grow as believers embark on their journey with Christ. It’s the selfless acts of love and kindness toward our fellow man that revives our spirits. And while we enjoy material aspects of the season, Christ is the one who meets our deepest spiritual needs. Merry Christmas!
