There’s a right way, and a wrong way, to revere our Lord. Some use scripture as a weapon against others, often, against people they merely disagree with. Some, though, revere and love our Lord because He first loved us, even before they know Him completely. Christmas especially is a great time to really remember our love for Him for coming into the world to save us all.
Questions for further thought:
1. During the holidays, do your family and friends often quarrel?
2. Do you sometimes see Christ used as a weapon to stop people from questioning Him, or to stop disagreements about other things?
Challenge: Christmas is a time to revere and love our Lord. It isn’t a time to win arguments against family members and friends (or on social media). This Christmas, let the spirit of unity be present in us as it was for those who gathered to witness His birth on that blessed day.
