Honoring Christmas…

Some of us forget that this season, for many of us who would call ourselves followers of Christ, is all about the birth of our Savior. With all of the commercialization and ‘sensitivity’ around the even mentioning the word, it can take us away from why we really celebrate Christmas. I personally am on a mission to change that a little.

How? Simple, I have made a promise to be overly kind, generous, and spread a little peace on earth in the name of our Lord. I challenge you to as well.

We can all simply modify our behavior just a bit in favor of kindness, and Christmas. Here are some examples….

  • Hold the door for a stranger, then wish them a Merry Christmas
  • Buy a stranger a coffee at your local coffee shop, and wish them a Merry Christmas
  • Give up your place in line to a stranger, and wish them a Merry Christmas
  • Write Merry Christmas, on the top of your credit card slips as you sign your
    name helping the business recognize your appreciation for Christmas.
  • Honestly, in everything you do, try to include a Merry Christmas…and be kind
    to one another.

Oh, and I truly wish you and yours a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!
