I wonder, has our Savior’s birth become more about us than Christ?
We busy ourselves hanging lights and placing bulbs on evergreen limbs, fight hordes of shoppers to purchase gifts for those who already have so much, and stuff ourselves on delicious things to eat. We sing carols, pass out candle canes, and send dozens and dozens of Christmas greetings. We place managers upon our mantles, read the the Christmas Story, and light candles on Christmas Eve.
But…do we pause…for Christ?
Do we realize there are 2 billion people in the world who have never heard Christ’s Name?
Do we remember the millions who suffer around the world…who don’t string lights and hang bulbs, who don’t have money for gifts…or food…or even shelter?
Let’s not forget the gift of Salvation that we have been given, and be the gift to someone who truly needs the light of Christ.
