I’m sure I have done a blog along these lines before, in fact it was probably a year ago! I feel anxious that young people approach the Christmas season with the right attitude. The way ‘Christmas’ is presented as a time of gifts, food, fun and treats can be quite damaging and to go in to this season with a sense of ‘what can I have’, ‘what can I get’ is not the right way! We need to be teaching our young people to be givers and servers over this time recognising that there is more joy in giving than in taking and having. I’m not wanting to be overly worthy but I do think that this is a principle that the young need to learn earlier rather than later.
Wishing all those that are reading this a really happy, joy filled and serving Christmas.
