Lately, I’ve been working on a small piece for a magazine about the Christian’s perspective of Christmas. What is it? Undoubtedly, it’s about the Savior’s birth. There’s beauty behind it that I never really discovered until I started writing what it meant to me personally.
It’s a call to love.
A season to reach out to the hopeless, the broken, and the unloved. But is this ideal only reserved for Christmas? My heart begs for it not to be. That now, the day after a historic election, we can look beyond ourselves and extend our hand to the hurting. Love knows no color, nationality, or political party. We need to look through the eyes of Jesus. He loved those who hated him, who tortured him, who approved his death. Have we loved to that point, yet? Did he condone their behavior? Nope. He told them to go and sin no more, but he said that for their own gain. Sin destroys. He spoke the truth, yes, but it was done so in love.
And that is my thought for today 🙂
