I have made an executive decision: I will be mostly posting about insights from How the Grinch Stole Christmas! for all my Christmas-y blog entries. There's so much to learn from Dr. Seuss' classic story (plus it's my favorite!). Sound good? Sweet.
Well, just a short one today about focusing on what's most important. You'll recall with me that one of the Grinch's major beefs with the Whos' celebration of Christmas was "All the noise, noise, noise!" He was so caught up in the hectic, helter-skelter of the season that he (and perhaps many of the Whos [Who's Whose Whos?]) lost sight of the true meaning of Christmas.
We too can fall into that trap. I know I have! In fact, even as a missionary I get wrapped up in all the running around and ins and outs and ups and downs and the noise, noise, noise! But Christ Himself said, "Peace I leave with you" and "I have overcome the world". That, my friends, is the spirit of Christmas. May we all focus on the things that matter most and invite the spirit of Christmas (which is the Spirit of Christ) into our lives this Christmas season.
