Merry Christmas everyone! When I was at church last night, the pastor shared a message that I want to share with you guys. He talked about this one Christmas when he was trying to drive to Kentucky with his family on Christmas Day, but they weather was terrible. There were cars in the ditches everywhere due to the amount of ice on the road. They eventually decided to turn around and head home. After three hours of driving, they made it back.
Since they planned on being gone for several days, there was no food in the house. Since it was Christmas night there was nothing open, except for a Jack in the Box, so they were forced to eat there for Christmas dinner. He became really upset with God. Really?? This is where they had to eat Christmas dinner while their family was able to celebrate together with amazing food??
When he bowed his head to pray over the food, he suddenly felt God’s presence, and the anger left him. Thank you, God, for this food in front of us. Many do not have food tonight. Thank you, God, that we are home, safe, and not stuck in a ditch on the side of the road like many are. Thank you that we are not cold and I am not struggling to keep my newborn baby warm. Thank you for giving me my wife and child. Thank you for giving us your child, Jesus, to come and die on the cross to save our sins.
I thought this message was so powerful! Social media can be such a dangerous place to compare your Christmas to others. People might receive amazing gifts and travel to amazing places this year. Before you begin comparing your Christmas to others, think of those who don’t even have a phone and aren’t able to do that. I’m vowing this year to be grateful for all that I have around me, and I hope you will too!
