It’s only 22 days until Christmas and if you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping, well, I don’t envy you; especially if you plan to brave the local mall. Christmas has unfortunately become grossly commercialized and we often miss the reason for the season, which is the recognition and celebration of the incarnation of God in His son Jesus. So in the spirit of celebrating God’s greatest gift to us in Jesus, rebel against the secular excesses. Why don’t you bless others who need more than just another gaudy Christmas sweater? How about ring a bell for the Salvation Army, volunteer to work in a soup Kitchen, or donate to Angel Tree which gives gifts to children whose parent is in prison? In other words, spread goodwill and cheer to those who need a bit of God’s love this season. You’ll be glad you did.
