Our biggest challenge this season is to put the focus on Christ, where it should be. And even more difficult is to put the focus on Easter within this Christmas celebration. After all, He was born to die and in dying gave us life.
I think this year I am going to ask my kids to share what they would do if they were kings and queens. I am sure that none of them would say
"become poor, live a life of great hardship, be restrained from being all that they have the power and authority to be, and then die in the most offensive manner for all to see for people who, even though they say they love you push you aside for the majority of their lives only to call on you when things don't go their way"...
Perspective; something we clearly lack most of our days.
I pray that you and I change our perspective in 2011 and put our King on his throne.
Merry Christmas to you and a prayer for an exciting and Christ honoring New Year.
