Are you disillusioned by the commercialism of Christmas? Don't be.
God is great and mighty. He can take the distraction and greed of consumerism to bring about His good purposes.
If we take time out, get off the "hustle and bustle" train and look around we can see something great. Look around you. All the shopping and shipping and decorating and traveling. For what? What is it all for? The perfect Christmas, of course. Searching and Expectation are in the air. It is not just one person, either. It is a whole country...maybe many countries. I don't know how it is outside of the U.S.A.
Most of us think that once we get to Christmas Eve, or Christmas Morning this magical peace will light upon us. "Ah," we will say, "I'm so glad it's Christmas!" Then the next day comes. Some may have regrets. Too much money spent, too much alcohol drunk, a disappointing gift, far from home and family.
A 'perfect' Christmas, if it can be found, is fleeting. It is over the next day. Instead, Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you.
The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you Luke 10
The kingdom of God is within you Luke 17:21
The kingdom of God is near Luke 21:31
The kingdom of God is...righteousness, joy and peace in the Holy Ghost Romans 14:17
The kingdom of God is...in power 1 Cor 4:20
And this [shall be] a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:12-14
What if you were far from family and friends? What if you had no money and no place to stay? What if there was no yummy feast or pretty treats?
So it was for Mary and Joseph and the Babe. What a Merry Christmas they had!
But Mary kept all these things, and pondered [them] in her heart. Luke 2:19
