Best Black Friday Deal

Black Friday marks the official beginning of the holiday shopping season. People wait in line all night in the hope of saving ten dollars on a gift. I wonder if people remember, or would stand in line all night, in the hope of catching the saving grace of God.

The holiday season, as it is politically named, is really the official beginning of the birthday celebration of Jesus. Without the birth of Christ, there would be no holiday season, and no saving grace.

We might miss the sales, but we should not miss this wonderful opportunity to share the true gift of the season with others. Remember Jesus is the reason for the season. While that might sound like a cliché, it is a catchy way to remember why we celebrate. We celebrate because we have received God's greatest Gift.
