This year Christmas is on Sunday. Where will we be that morning? Christmas Eve will then be on Saturday night, so where will we be that evening? Will other “Christmas” activities take
priority at these times?
Is the opening of presents more important than taking the children to church? Can we not make room for both? Will we sit by the fire at home instead of acknowledging the coming of Christ into the world? We often hear that Christ is the greatest gift mankind could ever receive, but will we acknowledge this in any real way during Christmas?
When Jesus came into the world, there was no room for Him in the inn. I hope we will all make room for Him this Christmas, even if we have to alter other traditions a bit. It is a matter of priority, a matter of importance, a matter of faith.
So where will you and yours be on Christmas Day?
Oh Come All Ye Faithful . . . Oh Come Ye to Bethlehem.
