Christmas time should be the time of the year when we reflect upon the birth of Jesus. However, all too often it is filled with present buying, present wrapping, Christmas cards, light displays and baking treats. All of these things are enjoyable, but they can create a busyness which can detract from the true meaning of Christmas.
I encourage you this Christmas to read the story of Christ's birth in the Bible. There is no substitute for God's word, but there are also some really great Advent devotionals like the one our church is going through called Waiting Here for You by Louie Giglio. There are also some really great Christmas songs which are beautifully written that are worth pausing and meditating on the meaning.
