It appears as though more people are growing weary of the increasing busyness and commercialization of Christmas. Many people would like to return to a simpler way of celebrating this season. But our busyness may be a comfortable distraction to those who do not want Christ to be at the center of this annual celebration.
Activity is good for pulling our minds away from honest thinking. So many people may let this Christmas pass without ever hearing the story about what Christ came to do for them. Please take the time to read the Christmas story for yourself. You can find it in the Bible in Matthew, chapters 1 and 2. But please don't stop reading there. Read the rest of the book as well. I hope you get to know Christ this season.
