Don't forget to spend time with your children and don't let arguments ruin a good party.

It is more blessed to give than receive

I think one of the nicest things that the local fire departments do to bring in the spirit of Christmas is the annual visit of Santa Claus coming through the neighborhoods.

Accept God's gift to mankind

Everyone loves gifts and during the Christmas season, many of them are exchanged. People will go into debt to buy gifts for their children, families and friends. Often, caught up in the hype of gift-giving, we forget the real purpose of this holiday. We forget that this is a day that we have set aside to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God's gift to the world.

Putting disappointment in perspective

At this time of year a person gets used to traveling down certain roads and looking for Christmas lights. Some people consistently light up their homes or lawns with these beautiful displays. This year I have noticed that some such displays are missing – my guess is that it could be because of the economy.

What God has given

When we stop to think of all the things God has given, it really is unbelievable. His generosity toward man is immeasurable.

What will you do with Jesus this season?

Last week I asked you to take a Christmas quiz with me. I would not do that to you two weeks in a row. But I will ask you again, how much do you know about this season? And even more, how much do you need to know?

What kind of God is this?

I think about the love I have for my wife all the time, especially the feeling I have when I see her smile. The joy that comes over me when I am the source of that smile is overwhelming. Sometimes the hair on the back of my neck stands up when she walks into a room. It is easy to love someone this way, especially when you know that the love is reciprocal. I am sure there are some husbands who can identify with what I am saying.

Only one way leads to Heaven

We all have ways of doing things. As human beings, created in the image of God and given the ability to make choices, sometimes we disagree. God gives us this license when it comes to earthly things.

You don't have to spend money to give

The scripture tells us that "it is more blessed to give than to receive."

Remember to stay focused on Jesus

It is very easy during this time of the year to lose focus on what is important. With the pressure of society, family and friends, sometimes we find ourselves caught in a whirlwind of wants, requests and desires that blur the vision that was so clearly mapped out for us just a few months earlier.

Live life with a pure heart

We live in a world that is fueled by agendas. Man, by nature, tends to look out for himself. Occasionally, (it is one of the rarest occurrences) you come across a person who's only true agenda is the success and betterment of those to whom he or she is related. There is a person who is never quite understood. There is a person who is often rejected on the basis of trust. A pure heart often leads the bearer to be alone, even among thousands.
