Ephesians 4:32 – And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
With the Holiday Season in full force and Christmas just a few days away this is a perfect verse for this time. We as people get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season, we rush around trying to accomplish our list of tasks. In the process we tend to forget about the real reason for the season, JESUS. The Holiday Season, Christmas Day is not about us, not about gifts, not about impressing people, it’s about JESUS.
The Holiday season is the perfect time to show kindness, be tenderhearted and offer forgiveness. Why? Because God for Christ’s sake has forgiven us! God showed us kindness in giving us Jesus as the perfect gift for mankind! God showed us His tenderheart by allowing Jesus to pay for the sins of mankind on the cross! God shows us forgiveness when we accept the gift of salvation that God offered through Jesus!
Today if you are a child of God we can show this dark world a glimmer of light and hope. How? By showing them kindness that they don’t see everyday, by being tenderhearted in a cold-hearted world, and by showing forgiveness when all we see is revenge! We can be lights this Christmas season, the light of Jesus in a dark and dying world! What does the world need most this Christmas? The gift of salvation, wrapped up in Jesus!
Because of the Cross,
