Christmas Is for You



For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. – Luke 2:11

For several years, I enjoyed singing in a church Christmas choir. I balanced precariously on the risers, surrounded by my fun alto friends and the rapturous Christmas music we sang. In this spot, I felt a huge, concentrated dose of God’s Christmas love.

However, one lyric bothered me: “It’s our very favorite time of year!” It sure wasn’t mine!
