The Christmas Tree

To many people, Christmas time 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 anxiety.

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 beautyWhen 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. Welcome challenges and down time. We need both 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
  • Forever green – 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 to a particular event or dateLove always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Cor 13:7 Be thankful in all circumstances. 1 Th 5:18

Wishing you a Christmas blessed with the gifts of the Evergreen.

    Hi Jewell,
    I’ve always loved looking at a Christmas tree with white lights aglow and room lights off. So peaceful. And trees in the outdoors, Strong, protective of living creatures, no matter the season. Now I need to truly “consider the trees” in another light.
    The merriest Christmas and a blessed new year.

    • Yes, Consider the trees. They hold secrets that teach life lessons. Merry Christmas blessings to you and your family.
