Some Christmas thoughts


Just wanted to give you (and me) some things to ponder this Christmas.

Be careful not to push so hard to “keep Christ in Christmas” that you end up judging and condemning those who don’t.

Remember the men and women who have been killed in the line of duty, whether it be in law enforcement or the military.

It’s not really a big deal if people say Happy Holidays over Merry Christmas.

Jesus is so amazingly more than just a Christmas story.

It’s not worth maxing out every credit card you have just to give your children an “awesome Christmas.”

Jesus is not just the “reason for the season.” He is the reason we have daily relationship with our Father.

There are so many people who can’t be with their families. Let’s not ever forget that.

Jesus paid much too high a price for us to only celebrate Him one day a year.

Be safe. Have an amazing time with friends and family. Always walk in love and mercy toward others. Merry Christmas.

  1. At this crucial point of transition between the world-cycles of the Piscean and the Aquarian Age, and with all the suffering and pain that humanity is experiencing–the various injustices that tyrants are afflicting the innocent masses, not to mention the
    descent of negative karma in its myriad of forms as described in Revelations as the “seven last plagues,” it is understandable that humanity cry-out for a
    Saviour to save it from a sensed future destruction. Indeed, The Elevation Group is believed to be the saviour of struggling business owners
    from financial turmoil. Many churches teach that unless humanity accepts Jesus as their Saviour, God will punish them for
    eternity in the hot fires of hell.

  2. Reblogged this on Deciphering Life and commented:
    I agree with this blog post so much that I have to reblog it!
    God played a trick on mankind who do not believe Jesus is the Son of God by making Christmas such a fantastic holiday with something for everyone that those who do not recognize it as Jesus’ birth are still inadvertently celebrating Jesus’ birth without realizing it! It doesn’t matter if people celebrate with Santa, a plethora of gifts, or jingle bells, the point is they are still celebrating Christmas. I giggle when someone derides a creche down the street yet has a Christmas tree in their house. It’s God’s joke on those who do not believe.

  3. Dear Chris:

    Thank you for your thougts. I just wrote an article for our Knights magazine along these lines. Thank you for the reinforcement. It is about Christ, but also others who are in need.

  4. Excellent perspective on love, not competition with others. Those who stridently advocate forcing others to either acknowledge or not acknowledge “Christ”- mas ultimately do damage to their cause by being so pushy. Who wants to hang around with someone who is in your face all the time? As the old saying goes, “You catch more flies with honey than vinegar.”
    Again, excellent! Oh, BTW, hope your Christmas is wonderful, and hope it will be celebrated all year!

  5. Hm… Interesting thoughts. I personally still feel that it is a big deal whether people say ‘Happy Holiday’ or ‘Merry Christmas’. It’s generally not something worth arguing about, especially with people who aren’t Christian, but it is a part of our own language of which we should be especially wary. We should never resort to wrapping Jesus in a euphemism for the sake of social acceptance.

    With all that said, I like your post. Merry Christmas.

  6. Do we ever ponder, ‘What would have happened if we took the commercialism from the celebration of Christmas?’ Leave Santa, the gifts, the tree, the lights behind… what would we be left with? What did Jesus, the son of Virgin Mary (may peace and blessings of God be upon them both) say about Christmas anyway?

  7. Chris, this is a powerful message, my friend. I agree with including all and the way Christ may lead his life during this troubled times would be to love one another. To lead us by loving all. Peace to you, great message!
