Best Wishes for a Merry Christmas

"People often lament that in our celebration of Christmas, we tend to lose sight of its true meaning. Not to be a contrarian, but I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive.

"At Christmastime, we celebrate family, giving, tradition, friendship, community, love, goodwill and so much else that is great and good about human existence. These sublime experiences and institutions are wonderful precisely because our Savior, in whom goodness inheres, created them.

"With proper godly perspective, delighting in these glorious gifts actually enhances our focus on God; it doesn’t diminish it. Of course, we must discipline ourselves, if it doesn’t occur naturally, to give thanks to God and to consciously savor Him and His gift of life to us.

"This time of year, we celebrate Christ’s incarnation — His birth, His earthly example and His miracles and teachings. We humbly bow at the Crucifixion, marvel at the magisterial Resurrection and gratefully acknowledge our regeneration salvation in Him. We cherish that He is truth, the judge and the very giver of life."
