25 Days Of Blogmas! Jesus Is The Reason For The Season: Day 7

Helloooo, everyone! Graciepopstar91 here!

Today I'm filling in for Coolcat, since tonight her and her mom went out to see a movie, and she didn't have time to post earlier. Hope you enjoy the movie, Coolcat! ^.^

Welcome to day 7 of 25 Days Of Blogmas! Today I decided that I'd cover something that seems to be more and more less recognized about Christmas.

Lots of people in America this month are talking about santa, and parents bring their kids to see him. And of course, on Christmas Eve kids want to stay up and see santa. Santa always gets brought in the spotlight on Christmas.

But, truly, Christmas is all about Jesus. He's the reason we even have this holiday!

So instead of this month talking all about santa, what if we talked about Jesus? Instead of parents bringing their kids to santa, what if parents tried leading their kids to Jesus? Instead of bringing santa in the spotlight on Christmas, what if we brought Jesus back into the spotlight on Christmas?

Really, I think all this santa stuff is really idolizing him. There's framed pictures of santa, santa ornaments, etc.. And him having 'magical powers' or whatever is super strange.

Exodus 20:3, one of the Ten Commandments, says this,

“You shall have no other gods before me.["]

So, if we are idolizing santa, that really is putting something before God. Christmas is really a time to remember Jesus' birth, and all he's done for us, and not focusing all on santa, and all of the other things people have made Christmas into.


I hope you all have a wonderful week, and a great holiday season!

Here's todays Bible verse!

Psalm 37:24

Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.

God made you. Uniquely. Beautifully. Intentionally. Purposefully. Wonderfully.

Stay positive, be yourself, and spread God's Word everyday!
