The Reason for the Season

Sunday, December 12, 2010

I have been thinking a lot about Christmas and what it's really all about. I've realized that for the majority of my life I haven't really focused a lot on the true meaning of Christmas. I remember listening to the Christmas story that's found in the gospels of the New Testament (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) and the older women telling the story with the felt board and I always loved that! I feel like for the most part though most of my Christmases have been all about the gifts. Not saying that giving gifts is bad, but it's definitely not what Christmas is all about. I am grateful for the true meaning of Christmas and I know that the reason we celebrate it is because we are commemorating the life of our Savior Jesus Christ. He was the perfect example of how we should live our lives and He lives today to help us out when we need it. I'm so grateful for Him and all that He has done for me and all that He continues to do. I hope and pray that we all have a very Merry Christmas and that we take into account the reason for this season.

We watched this today in my Sunday school class and it really touched me. I hope you enjoy it! :)
