Christmas… why?

The commercialization.

The expectation.

The traffic.

The preparation.

The stress.

The money.

The time.

The pretending to care.

The lights, noise, family, friends, and  foes.

Why do we do it!?

Some say tradition. Some say family.

Neither are bad reasons and both can and should be good additional incentive and motivation for the why of Christmas.

THE TRUTH

Christmas is pointless if we do not recognize the point of Christmas is in sharing the joy and gift of Jesus Christ with those around us.

Jesus came to earth as a poor child so that we may have life and live it abundantly.

ABUNDANTLY – to – 1.present in great quantity; more than adequate; oversufficient
2. well supplied; abounding
3. richly supplied
The WHY of Christmas is found in the joy of sharing this abundant life…
These things – Love, joy, life – increase with Christ, just like loaves and fish.
