CHRIST is what it's all about
I took a photo of my nativity set. I've had it for years and it's made out of plastic-probably bought from K-Mart in the years before there was a Walmart. I like that it's unbreakable so that my kids and grandkids could pick it up and play with the set talking about what it was all about. The birth of a special Son, angels, shepherds, Mary and Joseph (who is an important part of the story), and the three wise men who came bringing gifts to honor the baby. May we all take a moment in our busy holiday celebrations to retell or act out or read this story from the bible that has changed the world. Why would the birth of just one infant be recorded in the histories of the world and have made such an impact on so many lives? Because He is the Son of God and loves us more than we can love. Because of His sacrifice on the cross, we will live again and see our departed loved ones. Merry CHRISTmas everyone.
