Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

the Christmas tree

There is magic in a lit
decorated Christmas tree.
A promise of gifts lie under the tree.
We can enjoy this.
There is no sin in it.
But we must not dwell on it
to the exclusion of of what
Christmas really means.
After all there is Christ
in Christmas.
Please remember and teach your children
the real meaning of Christmas.
Find a way to bring that joy
and peace into your life and theirs,
and let it remain permanently
in the forefront of all your thoughts.

Do not let the Christmas tree
or any other decoration
or gift, or tradition
supplant God's gift of salvation.

He who has not Christmas in his heart
will never find it under a tree.”
- Roy L. Smith
