This morning, I ponder all of the “Christmas” carols that talk about winter related issues. If I pick a Christmas station on any of the music services, I hear, “Let it Snow!” “Jingle Bells,” Where is “silent night”? “Away in a manger”? I’m sure they are there, but they seem buried deep behind the winter themes.
Jesus is the reason for the season. Let us spend this Christmas Eve day focusing on things that remind us of this. Let’s spend some time thinking about a baby who is coming into the world to save us. Let us spend some time with him in the manger, which represents the dirty sin in our lives, and let us fill the day with joy and amazement.
