Reason for the Season

Scripture Reading: II Corinthians 4
What is this holiday for?
Not for shopping and giving of gifts,
But for sharing and caring for hearts,
That would be lost and in the cold.
Why do we celebrate this season?
Jesus should be the reason.
Have we forgotten what happened long ago
In the little town of Bethlehem?
Why do we take Christ out of Christmas?
Just so we can get all the gifts on our list?
The greatest gift was sent to earth,
And THAT is why we celebrate His birth!
He alone can bring peace on earth,
He alone is our life's worth,
He gave all that He had to give,
So that we might live!
