While driving through town, I noticed elaborately decorated Christmas trees, twinkling lights everywhere, a Menorah, a Santa, and an empty corner where a manger scene once lay. Cars were driving quickly and aggressively. “Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?” Banners stating “Seasons Greetings” sparkle above the road. How sad that Jesus is missing from the scene. I feel bad for the many people who might be getting a lot of stuff this Christmas, but are really empty inside. Their hustle and bustle are all in vain. Their stuff will break, wear out, and memories will fade. Fun is really for the moment and then it is gone. This scene reminds me of Ma Ingalls’ vanity cakes. “They are all puffed up, like vanity, with nothing solid inside.” Love is solid. Where does love come from? It comes from God alone. Jesus fills the empty space. He fills the world with His love. Like Grinch, we are all “king of sinful sots”. That corner might be dark in town, but His light fills the whole earth-even America. Do you see it? “She will bear a Son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” Christmas Angel in Matthew 1:21
