Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Today, Christmas day, I believe is the best holiday of the year. We say no to work, and yes to family and friends. No to deadlines, yes to relaxation. No to selfishness, yes to giving. And no to the impossible, and yes to the actuality of God made flesh in the form of a child.Think about it: until you give yourself to some great cause, you haven't really begun to fully live.
Nothing significant is ever accomplished by a realistic person... A virgin giving birth? This certainly wasn't realistic. And what about you? Born to accomplish great things? You may think not... you know yourself. But more importantly, God knows you. He knows your days before you've lived them. He knows the number of hairs on your head. And He wants the best for you.When you think realistically you'll stop before you start. Say yes to God's great plan. This Christmas day and throughout the new year, be a heart through which Christ loves; a mind through which Christ thinks; a voice through which Christ speaks; and a hand with which Christ helps. Christ in you and through you makes a world of difference.
Through the ultimate example of Jesus, we learn that what we do for ourselves alone dies with us; what we do for others is timeless. Let's all remember to thank God for what He gave, Jesus!Merry Christmas!
