I usually feel guilty around Christmas time.
I can get presents for people, put up a fake Christmas tree, turn on some lights, and buy gingerbread house kits.
But Christmas is supposed to be focused on Jesus Christ and serving others, and to be honest, I struggle with making Christmas feel special in that way.
I feel like I do okay focusing on Jesus Christ and serving others on a day-to-day basis. But sometimes daily life feels like a lot (especially when you are doing a kitchen remodel), and doing more for Christmas time is hard.
I want to be able to serve other people and make this a good time for my children, but I don’t want to do it just because someone else tells me to and I feel guilty.
How do you serve others during Christmas time? Do you worry about making it a special time of year?
One thought on “126. Do I need to make a big deal out of Christmas?”
This is a hard question. I love Christmas, but not some parts of it. So I try to enjoy the parts I love. Helping others is a daily pursuit as needed. The best Christmas we can have is to serve 12 months not just one.
