The Season . . . .
Every year it seems that Christmas becomes more and more commercialized. Even in nations where the majority of people call themselves "Christian," the season has become more about shopping than worshiping. The pressure to buy gifts and plan elaborate parties makes it increasingly difficult to stay focused on the real meaning of the holiday, the birth of Jesus, God's only Son, the Savior of the world. Keeping Christ out of Christmas is as useless as holding back the ocean's tide.
