The Reason For The Season by SonofIssachar: 1:35am On Dec 26, 2020
Jesus is the reason for the season.

All the Christmas rush, the party preparations, the Christmas shopping and the terrible Christmas traffic could really drive even the best of us to insanity. Just read the following story.

A woman was out Christmas shopping with her two children. After many hours of looking at row after row of toys and everything else imaginable, and after hours of hearing both her children asking for everything they saw on those many shelves, she finally made it to the elevator with her two kids.

She was feeling what so many of us feel during the Christmas holiday season – overwhelming pressure to go to every party and every housewarming, to get the perfect gift for every person on the shopping list, and to make sure no one on the card list and those who sent us a card is forgotten.

When the elevator doors opened, there was already a crowd in the car. Exasperated, she pushed her way into the car, and dragged her two kids in with her and all the bags of stuff. When the doors closed, she couldn’t take it anymore and stated, “Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be found, strung up and shot.”

From the back of the car, everyone heard a quiet, calm voice respond, “Don’t worry. We already crucified him.” For the rest of the trip down, the elevator was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.

The One who started this “whole Christmas thing” should constantly be in our every deed, word, thought, and even purchase.

Don’t allow commercialism to replace the significance of the season.

By Francis J. Kong

Meditation: For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. – Colossians 1:16

You will succeed in Jesus Name!
