    Christmas Thought: Faith?

    December 24th is said to be the day that Christ was born but we have no way of actually knowing the exact date. The Bible doesn’t tell us. It most likely wasn’t in December. Scholars believe that Augustine picked the date. Does that mean it didn’t happen?

    If you believe that God created everything then twist your mind around this: He created Adam, and created a helper, a woman. Then became a child in the whom of his creation. He allowed His creation to care for Him and his every need.

    The Christmas song that has the words “Mary did you know that the boy you delivered will soon deliver you” What is this deliverance some ask. Simply put it is the Gift of eternal life.

    So why do we give each other presents? Our children learn by watching us and imitating what we do. As they grow parents provide for their children which usually make the parents feel good. There is a since of pride and a warm fuzzy feeling when they unwrap that present and smile. God, our Father gave his son who paid the price for our sins. How much did it cost it cost everything he had- his life.

    These hard economic times are good for men. Why? How you ask? So many men weigh their worth by the job they do and the things they have. When they loose those items the only thing that is left is what really matters, a relationship. Hopefully it’s a relationship with God and not the bottle or another false god.

    So how much faith do you have this holiday season? Do you have enough courage to explain to your kids that it’s not the amount of presents they receive it’s the thought behind the gift. We spend over 30 Billion on Christmas as a nation and yet to solve the world’s water problem it would only take 10 billion--- We give the present that will never get played with or the sweater that won’t get worn. Let’s not give so many gifts this year and focus on the true meaning of Christmas. Jesus gave the best gift to those who believe in him and are willing to follow His teachings……..

    …….do you have enough Faith to do that?


    Merry Christmas!

    Some question the wisdom of sinking a bunch of money into an old car, or spending a lot of money to make a car that runs fine go faster. But I'll never question the wisdom of someone who chooses to follow Christ. What better Christmas present could there ever be, than to give your life to Jesus.
    Maybe they don't make Desotos anymore, but I see there's at least one desoto that's going to last forever! Nice message, desoto.
     

     

    Even a fool, when he keeps his peace, is counted wise.
