It’s funny to watch two children staring at the last slice of pizza or the last piece of birthday cake, trying to decide who will get it. Even as adults, we find ourselves racing other people to the closest parking space, or arranging details to be sure we get with the biggest portion of a business deal. When we let our desires lead us instead of asking God for direction, we will never end up where He wants us to be. So, what is driving your choices in life right now?
Seeing Christ in the Songs of Christmas
One way we always know the Christmas season is here is by the songs on the radio. Around Thanksgiving, radio stations begin playing holiday tunes — some of them around the clock. Some Christmas songs just talk about presents and snow and Santa, but other carols have their origins in the Christian faith and speak boldly to the real reason for the season. In this series, we use Christmas songs as our backdrop to explore the wonderful, amazing and history-shaking birth of Christ — what it meant then and what it still means for us today.
