Remembering the Reason for the Season

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

I HAVE to start this post with a funny family story about the saying, "Remember the reason for the season."

About ten years ago my dad was at the grocery store checking out. The cashier said to my dad as he was leaving, "Remember the reason for the season." My dad replied, "You too!" Hahaha my family still cracks up laughing at this! My dad just assumed the cashier was going to offer up the normal, "Merry Christmas" in which the reply "You too!" is totally acceptable. Hehe nice one Dad!

That cashier was simply telling customers that day to remember why we celebrate Christmas and it's true meaning is.

Christmas is a time of God showing us just how much He loves us by sending his one and only son, Jesus. Jesus was born so that one day the price could be paid for tour sins. Without Jesus, we would all die in our sins and have no way to God.
