True Meaning of Christmas (in pictures)

Christmas is not far away...

But December is not the only month we should 
remember to do these things!

Prepare your hearts and minds to:

give with a generous heart,
love thy neighbor as yourself,
be quick to forgive,
slow to get angry,
and glorify God in all your
and words.

Christmas is not just about giving and receiving presents.
Christmas is not the only time we should give to others.
Christmas is not the only time we should spread joy and be nice to each other.
Christmas and Easter are not the only times we should 
celebrate the birth of Jesus and what he did for us.
Christmas and Easter are days we STOP our normal schedules (work, school, errands, etc.) and be thankful for the birth and death of Jesus.

But it was never meant to STOP there....
We should ALWAYS take time out of our day to STOP 
and thank God for all He has done for us.

In Heaven, we are constantly praising God in peace, joy, happiness and awe of Him. God wants us to praise Him more than twice a year. God wants us to serve Him (by serving others in His name) more than twice a year. God wants a relationship with each of us every day of the year, and through that, we praise Him always and glorify Him in all our ways.

Remember these things this season, 
before and after Christmas time.

"Jesus is the Reason for the Season!"
