God’s Gift; Never The Wrong Size

I would like to wish all my readers a very Merry and Blessed Christmas.

This truly is the greatest time of year for believers.

Our tradition of gift giving, song and celebration, is solely to honor the birth of our Lord.

Critics like to say we’ve stolen a pagan holiday.

The fact is, there are no days in the calendar that one can say were not, at one time, a pagan holiday.

Satan hates everything about this day.

Today The Church Liturgy suggests we lift up our voices in song and praise.

Is 52:7-10

How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings glad tidings,
announcing peace, bearing good news,
announcing salvation, and saying to Zion,
“Your God is King!”

Hark! Your sentinels raise a cry,
together they shout for joy,
for they see directly, before their eyes,
the LORD restoring Zion.
Break out together in song,
O ruins of Jerusalem!
For the LORD comforts his people,
he redeems Jerusalem.
The LORD has bared his holy arm
in the sight of all the nations;
all the ends of the earth will behold
the salvation of our God.

Sometimes gifts we give are not the right size.

As we go off to worship today, remember the joy God feels when we sing His praises.

All of us, according to the Gospel reading today, are born with a tiny pilot light inside, eager to be lit.

The Lord is the One Who turns that little flicker into an eternal flame.

Jn 1:1-5, 9-14

In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be.
What came to be through him was life,
and this life was the light of the human race;
the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.
The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.
He was in the world,
and the world came to be through him,
but the world did not know him.
He came to what was his own,
but his own people did not accept him.

But to those who did accept him
he gave power to become children of God,
to those who believe in his name,
who were born not by natural generation
nor by human choice nor by a man’s decision
but of God.
And the Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory as of the Father’s only Son,
full of grace and truth.

This Christmas allow Christ to ignite your little light.

You will find it’s the perfect gift for yourself and your loved ones.

Glory to God in the highest and peace to His people on earth.
