Decorations, smiles, people moving about with someone else in mind. All the external signs of the holiday season are afoot. Have you given thought to why people are so joyful at this time of year? I am sure that the plans for family and friend gatherings are on the forefront of your mind and that gift that says just what you want it to say or what you want to hear is running laps in your own. Central to all of this activity is the thing we must never lose sight of nor allow busyness to make a secondary concern: the birth of a child who meant that God was with us. As we scurry about and make plan after plan, challenge yourself to spend some time with Him and include Him in your plans with others. Let the good cheer and glad tidings bring forth the type of gift that ensures joy for an eternity: a relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ. Let people know that it comes free with the freight prepaid, all you have to do is believe.
