I saw these stats on line and thought them interesting.
In the West, this is the season for consumers and is the
season to spend huge amounts of money on food and drink, on Christmas presents
and puppies that may be abandoned after the festive season is over. My
grandchildren get more fun out of the boxes and wrapping paper than they do
with the contents.
What is interesting though is that much of the earth’s
Christian population; do not celebrate with the West in the obsession with
consumerism. For them the celebration is not about feasting or buying huge
amounts of Alcohol. Nor is it about presents and gifts or family stress and
arguments. To them it is all about Jesus and what God has done for humankind.
Take a step back this Christmas and focus on the real reason
for this celebration. In the year ahead let us forget the stress that comes
from life and reignite the passion many once had for that little baby born in a
stable and placed in a manger. Jesus, Saviour of the world.
God Bless you and keep you and may 2020 be a blessed year
for all of you.
