THE CHRISTMAS TREE

For many people, Christmastime is a season that is cold, busy, and demanding. One they would rather forget than embrace. Between parties, spending, and uncomfortable family gatherings, their joy is overshadowed by grief. Thank God for the Christmas Tree! Its decorated beauty can illuminate our path to Merry and Bright.

The Christmas Tree is:

~A symbol of consistency and beauty – When all else fails, our inner beauty can continue to shine. In everything set them an example by doing what is good. Titus 2:7 

~Fresh and fragrant throughout the year – Trees that withstand harsh and refreshing conditions grow stronger. Pursue challenges and getaways. Both are needed to remain vibrant and help others. For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 2 Corinthians 2:15 

~An Evergreen Tree – Ever flourishing. The righteous will flourish like a palm tree and grow like a cedar. Planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green. Psalms 92:12-14 

~Universally and continually relevant* – Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hebrews 13:8 

~Not limited in applicability to a particular event or date* – Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:7                      Be thankful in all circumstances. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

AND…clothe yourselves with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. 1 Peter 3:4

Wishing you the Merriest Christmas!  I pray you are blessed by the secrets of the Evergreen.
