The Spirit of Christmas
Christians the world over will celebrate the birth of Christ the Saviour in the coming weeks. However, amidst all of the holiday lights and crowded malls, it is important to remember the spirit of the Christian holiday we celebrate. In the name of love, Jesus the Christ healed the sick, fed the hungry and ministered to the poor and weary. Christmas is meant to be a joyous celebration of the life of Christ. As parents and stepparents, we should look to His example as we go about our busy days. The best way we can celebrate is by sharing His love. Love the child who tests you. Pray for the child who hurts you. Hug the child who needs you. Embrace the gifts God has given you.
