Some years I get all caught up in the warm fuzzies of Christmas. My eyes tear up during candlelight service on Christmas Eve. I read the Christmas story with wonder. But some years the story seems too familiar. My to-do list seems too important. I want to get caught up in Christmas cheer, but I find myself thinking, I’m just not feeling it.
Between Santa and jingle bells, Christmas parties, and presents to buy and hope for, I think most of us struggle to keep our attention focused on the baby in the manger. I’ve worked hard to make this a Christmas where I had time to consider the sacred. That’s why I keep wondering how Jesus would celebrate His birth.
I know removing an idol from your life might be hard and uncomfortable, but God commands us to “love the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength” and to “do all things to the glory of God.” So if we aren’t doing that, then we aren’t going to be happy and satisfied.
