This Whole Christmas Thing


I really love Christmas, at least when all the insanity of shopping, traffic, eating, parties, crowds, etc. dies down, and I can actually savor the season. I heard a story recently about a frazzled mom out trying to finish her Christmas list, hitting all the stores, fighting the crowds, with two impatient, demanding kids in tow. Upon pushing into a crowded elevator at a dept. store, she blurted out, “Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be arrested, hung, then shot!” From the back of the elevator a quiet voice replied, “Don’t worry, we’ve already crucified Him.” You could have heard a pin drop the rest of the ride.
I don’t want to forget this year to keep the One who started “this whole Christmas thing” in my every thought, deed, purchase, and word. If we all would, just think how much better this world would be. I certainly want to keep centered on Christ, this season and beyond.
“But in your hearts, set apart Christ as Lord…” 1 Peter 3:15
