Proverbs 25:13 NASB

This is not the first or the only time that our world has faced turmoil on December 25th. I could share a long list of dark historical events and moments that occurred on and surrounded that date. Jesus showed up at one of those times. β€œOne of the farthest corners of the Roman Empire, Judaea was a land of ancient traditions and religious fervor. Decades of Roman rule were causing ever more resentment. Jesus was born to a family from a village called Nazareth, near the Sea of Galilee. As he was growing up, Judaea was collapsing into chaos.” The birth of Jesus so disrupted history that our calendar is literally divided around His coming. In a world desperate for light in the darkness, God sent the source of light itself. At a time when our world, starting with our home and community, is again in desperate need of light, God again offers the Source through His followers. Today, celebrate the baby in the manger and reflect His light throughout the day. #BeTheEdge

β€œ…I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” Jesus

Merry Christmas!
