The Christmas Advantage

 

Unique Opportunities to Share Christ this Season

 

It can be almost “cool” to be a Christian at Christmas.  Even unbelievers assume many of the trappings of our faith.  And they are blissfully unaware that most of their decorations represent truths about Christianity.  It’s a great time to take advantage of opportunities to share Christ and give witness to the events that led to this celebration.  Consider these ideas for helping lost friends and relatives see the Savior in this season.

Advent-ure

There has been this frequent struggle that ensues this time of the year over the amount of commercialism that we allow into our Christmas celebration.  We say that we desire a simpler holiday celebration and try to keep the focus on our Savior’s birth, but we end up getting caught up in the shopping frenzy and the age-old questions about what we’re going to give the kids for Christmas, what sort of tie we’re going to buy for the dad who has everything, where we’re going to spend Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, the week after Christmas, and so on and so forth.

Angels Among Us

 

The Salvation Army Blesses the Needy at Christmas

Whether or not you have children of your own, it’s hard to overlook the giddy grins and sheer excitement that illuminates from them during this time of year. For most of us, the children we know will have full stockings and bellies, not to mention a Christmas tree bursting with gifts they can’t wait to unwrap on December 25th.

Overcoming Rejection

 

Devon walked away from the list posted on the board outside the drama classroom. Once again, he’d been bypassed. Oh, he’d be in several crowd scenes, but he’d auditioned for a lead role in the play, and Samuel had gotten the part. Samuel always got the lead. “I don’t know why they even bother having auditions,” Devon muttered. “They cast the same people for the lead roles every time.”

Flipping Houses

Question: My wife and I want to do a live-in/flip real estate purchase. The idea is to buy a fixer-upper and rent out the basement to help with the mortgage payments. What do you think about the idea?

An Explosion of Christmas Light

 

It is a terrifying feeling. The storm is raging. The power is out. Your lights are off and your fear is on. But relief flies in when the lights return. Anxiety takes flight when your lights reignite!
