Remember to Celebrate Jesus’s Birthday As You Give and Receive Presents
From my family to yours, we wish you a safe and happy Christmas as you celebrate Jesus’s birthday.
As you spend this season with family and friends, may your celebrations be joyous and your time together be uplifting.
May you receive the gifts given to you well and even more so seek to give well to others. For it is, truly, better to give than to receive, Acts 20:35.
Regardless of the needs in your life, remember others whose needs are even greater than yours or whose burdens may be heavier than yours. So, despite our circumstances, we are indeed the blessed ones on this earth.
Yes, this is the season to give and to love and to share, but this year let’s extend those sentiments—and the actions they produce—throughout the year.
If we do so, we’ll keep the Christmas spirit alive in us—and those around us.
May you have a happy Christmas!

Peter DeHaan writes about biblical Christianity to confront status quo religion and live a life that matters. He seeks a fresh approach to following Jesus through the lens of Scripture, without the baggage of made-up traditions and meaningless practices.
