Christmas was going to be different this year. The father called a family conference and challenged them to be more disciplined in the management of their time during the busy Christmas season and to curtail excessive spending on gifts. He talked about better relations between visiting relatives and a more congenial atmosphere around their home. He brought his speech to a crescendo with his final rally cry, “Let’s make this the best Christmas EVER!” His little second-grade son countered the big motivational speech by noting, “But Dad, I don’t see how we could ever improve on the first Christmas.” We certainly can’t improve on what happened that first Christmas, but we can improve on how we celebrate it today.
If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent us an educator. If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist. If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist. If our greatest need had been pleasure, God would have sent us an entertainer. But our greatest need was forgiveness, so God sent us a Savior.It’s more than just a saying...Jesus really is the only reason for the season. Jesus should be the reason we do what we do!
✞ Jesus is your greatest need so live your life for Him.
