The Christmas Birthday Debate; Missing the point.

I’ve been thinking about this for the past few months, and trying to find a logical method of explaining things.

Many of us, Christians, and non-Christians, celebrate Christmas. We buy gifts for loved ones, take time off to see family that we may rarely visit otherwise, and we try to treat co-workers & peers with extra amounts of respect.

We all take time out of our lives to share positive thoughts, positive feelings, and positive behaviors. We schedule this time.

Bickering over dates, and times, isn’t as relevant as us, mankind, behaving exactly as our heavenly Father, wants us to.  Even self professed “free thinkers”, atheists, participate in the positive behavior. 

Focus on the positive! 

Ephesians 4:31-32

“Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.  And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.
