How can I be a Christian?

Let God be your worrier in 2011

Are we making the right preparations for heaven?

Can we live a better life? Could it be that we need a better job,or more money? Perhaps we need new friends? Our society seeks the better life in these and other things. Now there is nothing wrong with a better job, making more money and having new friends, unless they are all we live for.

It is more blessed to give than receive

I think one of the nicest things that the local fire departments do to bring in the spirit of Christmas is the annual visit of Santa Claus coming through the neighborhoods.

Accept God's gift to mankind

Everyone loves gifts and during the Christmas season, many of them are exchanged. People will go into debt to buy gifts for their children, families and friends. Often, caught up in the hype of gift-giving, we forget the real purpose of this holiday. We forget that this is a day that we have set aside to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God's gift to the world.

Putting disappointment in perspective

At this time of year a person gets used to traveling down certain roads and looking for Christmas lights. Some people consistently light up their homes or lawns with these beautiful displays. This year I have noticed that some such displays are missing – my guess is that it could be because of the economy.

What God has given

When we stop to think of all the things God has given, it really is unbelievable. His generosity toward man is immeasurable.

What kind of God is this?

I think about the love I have for my wife all the time, especially the feeling I have when I see her smile. The joy that comes over me when I am the source of that smile is overwhelming. Sometimes the hair on the back of my neck stands up when she walks into a room. It is easy to love someone this way, especially when you know that the love is reciprocal. I am sure there are some husbands who can identify with what I am saying.

Don't forget why you're celebrating
