Reason for the Season

Hebrews 12:2

We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus….

Yes, I know this was part of yesterday's reading, but I had the prompting to remind everybody that we should keep our eyes on Jesus every day.

Right now with the hurry and run during the holidays it seems even more so that we should keep our eyes fixed on Jesus after all He is who this season is suppose to be about!

Today, fix your eyes on Jesus!

When someone breaks in line in front of you remember the reason for the season - Remember Jesus!

Today, when someone honks their horn because you are waiting on the light to change – Remember Jesus!

Today, when someone yells at you because you are in their way – Remember Jesus!

It is so sad to me that during the season that we celebrate Jesus birth we (humans) become less and less like Jesus. After all, the impatience, the hurried feelings, the short tempers…none of this comes from Jesus…it comes from not keeping our eyes on Jesus.

So, today stay focused on Jesus and His birth not you're to do list that might not get done…it's okay if it doesn't…

Focusing on the reason for the season,

Debbie, I needed this reminder as I am heading out the door this morning with a list of things to do and places to be. Hoping that I go at a little slower pace as I keep my eyes on Jesus, the reason for the season.
