We bring out the flavor of Christ in our traditional family gatherings by maintaining an awareness of the nearness of the Savior. Even if those with whom you will be gathering are not all believers, the fact that YOU are is the key.
It’s tough for us to season our conversations with salt and our actions with grace unless we have the meaning of Christmas internalized. When we dwell in God’s word, the presence of Christ dwells in us. The Holy Spirit within us prompts us to live and share the Christmas message.
Here’s the question we should all ask, “Why has God entrusted me with so much?” For me the answer is, so I can give. God gives to us so that we can give for his purposes. God entrusts us to share our blessings. He doesn’t give to us so that we can build our personal Fairchild kingdom.
