The Light of christmas.........

In Matthew 2 : 6, It is written :

AND YOU, BETHLEHEM, LAND OF JUDAH,
ARE BY NO MEANS LEAST AMONG THE LEADERS OF JUDAH;
FOR OUT OF YOU SHALL COME FORTH A RULER
WHO WILL SHEPHERD MY PEOPLE ISRAEL.'"

Christmas is here again and the spirit of christmas is alive! But stop to ponder about the true meaning of christmas. We are bombarded with adverts everyday about shopping, receiving gifts and eating our hearts out but is this the true meaning of christmas? When did it become more about presents and Santa Claus? About shopping and eating?


Christmas is about the coming of the great Light (Jesus). It is about how we receive that light and how we spread it to those in still in darkness! Christ is coming as he did over 2000 years ago in that little town of bethlehem! In that cave, hidden from the world, our saviour was born and he is coming again to be born in our hearts. The question is, are our hearts ready to receive him?


Look around you and you will not have to look far to see hearts yearning for love! Even in our own families! There is too much selfishness, too much thought for one's own well being and happiness! This christmas, share the little you have with others. There is no one who is too poor to share anything! Even just  a smile, bringing joy and laughter to other is something!


Lord, we await your coming with joyful hearts bursting with anticipation! May we prepare them to receive you in humility and love....just like the beautiful heart of your mother, Mary on that silent night so many years ago!
