Remember the Reason for the Season.

I initially made it a thought of the day but have since decided to make this into a posting for today. So today I was thinking about how December seems to be the most stressful time of the year. I mean for me I enjoy it to some extent and for other reasons I dread it because the focus during this last month of the year is always about shopping like madness to scramble for “deals” to stuff we can buy for our families and friends because it’s Christmas. It is supposed to be a wonderful time of year but I think that over the years we have made it more commercialized than it should be and have missed the point of Christmas by a large extent.
Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ who came to save us sinners from eternal damnation. I know that that sounds harsh and I couldn’t quite figure out a way to say it “nicely” so that you could sleep well at night. The Savior of the World that was the Greatest Gift that the Lord gave to us. We scorn Him, we shun Him, we act like He doesn’t exist, and Yet He still promises that He will never Leave you nor Forsake You despite our pathetic attitudes.
