Luke 2:1-7 Today, Christians all over the world celebrate the coming of the Messiah, the Savior of the world. We have been shopping, going to parties and celebrations, and fighting the crowded streets and shops. But let us not forget what actually happened over 2,000 years ago.
At Christmastime we think of family and friends, cookies and sweets, baking and cooking, trees and wreaths, greenery and lights. And shopping. We become so busy at times that we lose focus on the truth of Christmas. Advent season causes us to recall the real hope of Christmas.
You’ve made your gift list and planned your Christmas shopping budget. You’ve looked at your calendar to time your purchases. You’ve shopped around for the best prices. But you still have a problem: You have that one person on your list who already has everything. What gift do you get that person for Christmas?
