Christmas is the Fix!
It’s been said that Christmas is “the most wonderful time of the year” and we believe that to be true! The lights and decorations make it a beautiful time of year. In spite of that there are some that are stressed, stretched and pulled. With all the parties, gifts to buy, and charity, some people get down during the Christmas season. How can such a wonderful time or year cause someone to feel overwhelmed and broken? Unfortunately we live in a broken world, a world that has been broken by sin. It’s been that way since all the way back in the Garden of Eden. That brokenness is what steals away the joy of Christmas and replaces it with stress and that overwhelmed feeling.
But we have good news (this is our favorite part)!! There is a fix for the brokenness, and this Fix was born on Christmas Day! In Luke 2:10-11, we read about the announcement of Jesus’ birth: “Suddenly, God’s angel stood among them and God’s glory blazed around them. They were terrified. The angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master. This is what you’re to look for: a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.”
Jesus is the answer to that brokenness and He is God’s greatest gift to us! This is the real reason we celebrate Christmas. It’s not about the parties and gifts, it’s about the celebration of a Savior to heal our brokenness!
From all of us at Sound Financial Strategies Group, we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope you will find the true Reason for the Season in Jesus!
