Christmas, I Love It!

     A deaf man looked through a window of a house and saw people dancing.  He thought that they were mad, jumping around like that.  The reason he didn’t understand was due to his handicap of not being able to hear the music.

     A lot of people will not get the most out of Christmas because they don’t understand what it is all about. Now, don’t misunderstand what I am saying when I say, “I love Christmas.” I deplore the abuse and misuse of Christmas. The thoughtlessness of a Christmas celebration which gives no thought of Him whose birthday we are suppose to be remembering. It is unthinkable for people to use Christmas, of all times, to be an excuse for selfish partying. The commercialization that takes advantage of the season to fleece the people from their money has nothing to do with the reason for the season.  How tragic to turn Christmas into a holiday with Santa Claus, lights, trees, presents, family gatherings, merriment with no thought of the birth of the Holy One.  Anything that detracts from Christmas being a holy time is objectionable.

      But, I refuse to be robbed or crowded out of enjoying Christmas by the hucksters and the party makers.  I am not going to give up something so sacred and beautiful, so full of meaning just because of the selfish detractors.  I won’t give in.  I love Christmas and the bright hope it brings to this dark world.

      Listen again to one of the most beautiful verses in the Bible which is John 1:14:
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”  NIV    
When we really understand the reason for the season, we cannot help but love Christmas.                    
                 I love Christmas, I hope that you love it too.

    God Bless you!
