Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Luke 2: 10
Christmas is good news! That’s the true message of the season and it’s something to cheer about but somewhere along the line, things have gotten complicated. We shouldn’t be carried away with how Christmas has been commercialized that we forget about how really simple it should be. The world shouldn’t tell us how to celebrate Christmas because it’s not about how much we have but how much we can give. It’s about sharing the good news and spreading joy. It’s not a time to be afraid or worry and fret about the things we don’t have or can’t afford. Hey, we’re not counting losses, we are celebrating the events surrounding the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, someone wonderful who was given to us as saviour, counselor and friend. That’s a plus and that’s why it’s good news!
REFLECT: In what ways can you let go of the rush rush and keep things simple this season?
