Well, now is the time when Christmas shows are played around the world. And, of course, those movies need commercials and, tell me, what is the most famous line you can think of when it comes to Christmas movie commercials?
” . . . and discovers the true meaning of Christmas . . .” Is this it? Most likely.
Let me tell you something, I have noticed that a majority of those movies find that the true meaning of Christmas dwells within the giving and not receiving. This is true and a good principle to live by but do the movie makers have it all wrong? For the most part!
Let me tell you that I am sick of Santa Claus destroying Christmas,
I am sick of Christmas being downplayed by movie makers,
I am sick of Christmas being taken as just a time to enjoy,
I am sick of “Merry Christmas” becoming “Happy Holidays”,
I am sick of Christmas being turned into a commercial holiday,
I am sick of Christ being removed with X-mas,
I am sick of Christmas being anything but Christ!
Christmas marks the birth of Jesus Christ, the only Son of God! He came to give His life for you! Christmas isn’t about us giving to each other it is about Him giving to us! Instead of celebrating giving presents to each other we should be praising God for the ultimate gift. Remember this as you go through the next couple of days before Christmas!
