I’ve been thinking that this tree is a lot like me this Christmas. At my foundation, I don’t have enough of the Lord’s light. I’m so concerned with the what’s, when’s, and where’s of Christmas that I’ve forgotten about the Who! As a result, my spirits are a little dimmer than usual. My star is crooked, too. I’m cranky!
If the what’s, when’s, and where’s of Christmas have your spirit shorting out, listen to what the Apostle Paul has to say in Philippians 2:14-16:
Do everything without complaining or arguing, 15so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe 16as you hold out the word of life—in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.
I may not be able to get my lights to work or my star on straight, but I want His light to shine through me this Christmas. I want to be sure to get plugged into the Super Power every morning! How are you going to keep the Who of Christmas alive in your heart this season?
