6 Warm Christmas Thoughts

Soul Snack 229/14 ... Peeping around the corner to Christmas, beyond the shimmer of Santa and the rattle of reindeer arrives some healthier thinking:

  • "You've stood where Joseph stood, caught between what God says and what makes sense." ~ Max Lucado
  • "Christmas is omnipotence wrapped in the bonds of my own fragile humanity." ~ Brennan Manning
  • “The manger became empty so that the cross could become full.”
  • "Christmas is God knowing He is blamed for the gloom of this world, but deciding to return blame with blessings."
  • "The manger; this insignificant landing pad of God on earth shouts - 'seek the simple, enjoy the elusive, but be sure to honor The Humble."
  • “God couldn't have made Himself bigger to impress us, so He made Himself smaller to attract us.“ ~ J. John

Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom... The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. (Isaiah 9:1-2)

Christmas is God's two thousand year old offer for all to walk in light and stumble no more.
