“All I Want for Christmas”

The first step to getting what you want is knowing what you want. (Arthur D. Hlavaty, writer)

What do you want for Christmas? These days, a child’s answer will most certainly include something electronic, maybe a new computer game. Adults’ desires may range from new socks to a new car. The old song referred to “my two front teeth.” That’s really practical, isn’t it? Maybe we should think less of toys and trinkets and more of things that add value to life.

Keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls (1 Peter 2:11). Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires (Psalm 37:4).
