I’ve been bad this Christmas

24 Dec

When I was young I would hardly sleep at all on Christmas Eve; Christmas was exciting, if I had been good, Santa Claus would put lots of gifts in my stocking. If I hadn’t been good… well then I was in for a rude shock. So Christmas is about being good? Actually Christmas is really about being bad…

Perhaps some people reading this blog have not been particularly good this year. Perhaps you’ve stolen money, cheated on your spouse, beaten your kid or run away from home. If that’s the case I guess you’re not expecting anything good in your stocking?

Christmas however symbolizes God’s incredible gift of grace, love and forgiveness to not the “deserving” but to the undeserving… so wherever you are this Christmas understand this one thing… God is with you and he is listening.

    Beautiful. I’m so grateful we don’t get what we deserve. God’s grace and mercy endure.
