It’s not that far away. As a matter of fact, it could almost be described as being just around the corner. You know what I’m talking about, even though you are trying to deny it. That’s right, “Christmas.” It’s only 13 days away, and if that’s not bad enough, there are only 12 shopping days left.
Now I want to take you back to last year. Do you remember all the hustle and bustle that surrounded Christmas? Do you remember all the stress and things you did you vowed you would never do again? Can you recall how you resolved next year would be different, how next year you would make a conscious effort to make Christ the focal point of Christmas and how you wouldn’t allow yourself to get caught up in all the crass commercialization of Christmas? Do you remember all of that?
Well, this is next year. And right now, you have the opportunity to make some important decisions concerning how you will celebrate the Christmas season this year.
That’s not to say that we do away with all the rest, but let’s put all the rest in its proper place, and then we won’t have to vow that, next year, it will be different.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
