Honoring Jesus this Season

7 Dec

“‘Man shall not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” – Jesus Christ

Let us not be tempted by all of the beautiful things of the season and all of the seemingly important traditions, so as to overlook the true meaning of Christmas.  I am so guilty of this.

Snuggling with my daughter as we enjoy listening to Christmas music, the snow and colorful lights in the neighborhood, all of the wonderful memories of 20 Christmas’ with my Mom –  so often these are the things that capture my heart more than Jesus’ birth.  While these things are good, they all fail in comparison to the birth of  my Savior.  During the Christmas season it’s so easy to get caught up in all of the busyness, the excitement, and the joyful traditions, thus making it easier to forget that Jesus is the reason for the season.  It is my prayer that we would live by every word that comes from the mouth of God.  I hope that this year we will discover new ways to incorporate Jesus into our Christmas traditions and that we would learn how to honor and glorify God throughout the entire Christmas season.
