Christmas is a very special time involving family and friends. It is the time for decorations, good holiday meals, and gift-giving. It is truly a special time of the year. But the greatest thing about Christmas of course, is that it is the designated season in which we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is all about Him and His humble coming to the earth. A Christmas celebrated with Jesus at its center it truly one of peace and joy.
When the office parties have finished; when the church parties are all over...most folks turn inward to celebrate Christmas with family. This is not a bad thing. But it brings me to the point of this post: THE CHALLENGE TO GO BEYOND YOURSELF.
This year I offer to you the opportunity to step outside of your realm and help someone less fortunate. As a matter of fact...I challenge you. I want to help the families of the children Harvest Celebration Ministries sponsors. And if possible, this Christmas I want to help some of the children in Honduras that we don't normally sponsor by providing a gift for them as well. Most of these precious folks live in the small, remote village of Concordia.
Most of us will spend a lot of money this Christmas on gifts. Please consider helping someone beyond your realm. This is the challenge to go beyond yourself!
