I love the Christmas season, with all the decorations and lights! It’s so cheerful and brings joy to my heart.
Thinking about the Christmas lights reminded me of our scripture for today. God has created us to be lights that shine for Him. It’s not to draw attention to ourselves but rather to bring glory to the Father, who created us.
I know in this season many people have a lot of stress, as they try to do all the things they feel they need to do to make this a perfect Christmas for their families. There is stress sometimes caused by the financial strain, and sometimes from strained relationships. There can also be sadness for those who have recently lost a loved one, who will be greatly missed at this time of celebration.
In the midst of this atmosphere, God is calling us to be lights that point to Him. We are celebrating the birth of Jesus, who came to earth and showed us how to live. He came as the light of the world and then He left His disciples to be the light of the world. Let us continue to shed His light to all around us. Let’s not cover the light with the cares and concerns of this world. Let’s celebrate the eternal light, Jesus, this season.
