With the Holidays so near, and with my access to a platform to share my thoughts It wouldn’t be right for me to not make a post about the true meaning of Christmas.
When this part of the year comes, stores begin to run over with people, roads become crowded and people become focused on what they can give to out shine another. Has any thought gone into the real meaning of Christmas?
Sure you have read the Bible where it says that Jesus was born to the Virgin Mary and her husband Joseph and how there was no room in the end. The three wise men brought gifts as well. However, there is more to it than that. Taking a deeper look you will see that these gifts that we go into debt for or buy to improve our image in the eyes of people aren’t really what it is about.
Christmas is about the ultimate gift being sent to earth from God. God sent his son Jesus and he is the ultimate gift that keeps on giving. Though we share in our remembrance by giving gifts they are temporary while the ultimate gift to us is eternal.
In all your celebrations and time with family never forget about the true meaning of Christmas! Always keep Christ in Christmas because there wouldn’t be a Christmas without him. If you know the real meaning pass it along.
