It’s the holiday season when I become reflective on the last year and look forward to the next one.
Certainly, Christmas has been a significant part of many of our lives for decades – definitely mine.
While traditions with family and friends, the cadence of the year, and the circle of life becomes more meaningful as I get older – the Christmas story holds special import to me. What is the significance? What is the meaning?
Jesus Christ’s birth and life represent the essence of ‘making a difference’ – selfless service, sacrifice, and redemption through forgiveness or grace.
Years ago when the wristband revolution began, there was a rubber wristband that had this acronym: WWJD: What Would Jesus Do?
Indeed, if every human – all of mankind could live a life of selfless service and sacrifice, while finding a heart for forgiveness or grace – the world would be a better place.
I for one will attempt to find these principles in my heart.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
