Two Things I Want To Learn From Christmas

Part II

Only 3 more days until Christmas. Do you feel peaceful?  I doubt it.  I know I don’t.  Most of us have been running around crazily since Thanksgiving.  Why?  I don’t know but it’s something we do.  

I want to learn PEACE this Christmas.  

More than Peace On Earth, I desire more peace of my spirit.  I am good at cramming into a week, more than most people do in a month.  I am busy and stretched and tired.  Why?  Because I am not at peace.  I tend to fill every hour of my day with people and stuff and activities so that I can feel fulfilled.

Jesus wasn’t like me.  He was busy but never in a hurry. He lived out a peaceful life.  We  know that on Jesus’ birth-day Mary and Joseph were reminded to be at peace.  At Jesus’ death – he had peace of mind to assign the care of his mother to John.  He was at peace because he was accomplishing the will of the Father.  

I want to be more like Jesus in 2018.

I want to live as a man of peace: displaying peace and spreading peace.

I want to do the will of the Father and I want to live in PEACE.

Could you use some peace in your life?  Join me this next year to live at peace – let’s reject the hurried and the nonsense.

Jesus is my PEACE. Merry Christmas

Luke 2:14

“Glory to God in highest heaven,
    and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”
