Earlier this week I got the Christmas decorations put away into the attic, did some cleaning and got the house back in order. This morning, as I sat and had my coffee, low and behold, there across the room I see a piece of Christmas decor that I missed! Seems like every year, no matter how hard I try, I always miss getting something put away. It will inevitably get moved from place to place over the next few months being a continual reminder of the joy of Christmas. We should be like this straggler that refused to be put in the attic with the rest of the Christmas cheer! During Christmas we tend to be a little kinder and more generous and loving, we shouldn't put that away with the decorations. We should exemplify that all year round. We should be a continual reminder to those around us what Christ had done for us, that he loves us and gave himself for us. Our love and kindness aren't a symbol of Christmas but of Christ. Throughout the rest of the year, find ways to live your life out daily showing the Holy Spirit just as you do showing the Christmas spirit. "Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience." Colossians 3:12 NLT
