Merry Christmas

1 Corinthians 13 – Christmas Style

If I decorate my house perfectly with lovely plaid bows,

strands of twinkling lights, and shiny glass balls, but do

not show love for my family, I am just another decorator.

If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas

cookies, preparing gourmet meals, and arranging a

beautifully adorned table at mealtime, but do not show

love to my family, I am just another cook.

If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the nursing home,

and give all that I have to charity, but do not show love to

my family, it profits me nothing.

If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted

snowflakes, attend a myriad of holiday parties, and sing in

the choir’s cantata but do not focus on Christ, I have

missed the point.

Love stops the cooking to hug the child. Love sets aside the

decorating to kiss the spouse. Love doesn’t envy another

home that has coordinated Christmas china and table

linens, Love doesn’t yell at the kids to “get out of my way.”

Love doesn’t give only to those who are able to give in

return, but rejoices in giving to those who can’t. Love bears

all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures

all things. Love never fails. Video games will break; pearl

necklaces will be lost;golf clubs will rust. But giving the

gift of love will endure!

May the miracle of Christmas

That we celebrate today

Fill your heart with inspiration

And bring happiness your way.
