The holiday season has come and gone. Time to put away the decorations, take down the Christmas lights and diet away the extra pounds gained from holiday feasting. For many, it means back to work or school for a three month stretch of winter without even the break of a long weekend.
As you take down those Christmas lights, try not to forget why you put them up. The lights of this season symbolize the light that God sent into the world with the birth of Jesus. Christ came into this world to advocate a better way for you and I to live. Each of us is to be a bit of light to improve the lives of others.
We may visit the elderly and sick during the holidays and take them a small gift or a bit of Christmas cheer. But do we remember these people afterwards? Do we donate to the Salvation Army kettles on Main Street during the weeks before Christmas, then ignore the Food Bank and other worthy causes the rest of the year?, Churches may overflow with people on Christmas Eve, but where are they the rest of the year?
As you pack away your Christmas lights for another year, remember, there is no mystery to the Christmas message. As the ghost of Christmas Present tells Scrooge, the message of Christmas should live in our hearts not just one day, but all the days of the year.
