The true which means of Christmas from the Inspirational Staff at Shazzy Health
People are looking forward to Christmas for various reasons. Unfortunately, some fear it instead. For them, the idea of spending money and meeting peers or family can be a bigger cause of worry and stress. But what is Christmas really about? What is the real meaning and celebration of Christmas?
Christmas is about giving
The center of the narrative is that Christ comes to earth to redeem humanity by giving it to himself. You can't be a scrooge and celebrate Christmas in a real way. This has nothing to do with commerce, but everything with being “a giver”. Yes, you may need to spend some money, but it doesn't always have to be about spending or spending a lot of it. J.C. Penney said, "Christmas time should not only be an opportunity to give material things, but also to give yourself." "Giving the self" can be expressed in many forms, and if it is sincere, price is never an issue. It is not embarrassing to only spend what you can afford or serve for a Christmas present, as long as the recipient feels your kindness and affection behind what you give him.
“Miserable excess is an unfortunate human trait
It's a very good idea like Christmas
into a frenzy of last minute shopping "
Christmas is about making peace
We all know that Christmas is about love. There can be no Christmas without love. But we should also remember that it is about making peace. Christ came to open the way for man to make peace with God. The scriptures say that God reconciles all people with himself through Christ. Christ made peace through his shed blood on the cross. (Column 1:20)
Is there someone you have to make peace with? Is there a problem where you need to rest and find peace? You can do that now and especially at Christmas. You don't have to like the person. You don't have to like what happened. You don't have to pretend or pretend a good relationship. But you have to make peace for your best.
The Bible describes what peace is about, but the dictionary also gives a good practical definition of it.
Peace should be:
"Free from interference,
a time when there is no war
or where the war ended. "
Give yourself time to see in which areas of your life and in which relationships you need to make peace. Then do it, make peace!
Christmas is about calm.
Calm comes with Christ; rest from “works that can never save” and rest from the problems of life. Once you find Christ, stop trying hopelessly to find your way back to God. With full faith and trust in God through the sacrifice of Christ on the cross, we find the certainty of a life and a relationship with God in this and the next life.
If you have found Christ, you will never live alone again. He is with you, helps you and even carries your cargo for you. Christ is your rest. Even under great stress, even in our worst mistakes, Christ is our rest. We can stop crazy worries. We can sleep, we can regain strength. Use this every day and especially at Christmas. There's always a lot to do, places to be, people to talk to. But remember to take some time to exclude everything. Stand in his presence and let your calmness put you in a mentally, physically and mentally relaxed posture. He is always here.
Love yourself and love God more by celebrating the true meaning of Christmas this year. And spend it with those you love.
