The Season’s Love

Christmas is a season for kindling the fire for hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart. (Washington Irving, 18th-19th century short-story writer)

This weekend it will be nice and pleasant to sit by the fire, feel peaceful and thankful. With family and friends around, the spirit of love prevails—and it’s sweet! In that world outside our cozy den, however, it seems there isn’t enough to go around. That’s why this Christmas season reminds us of God’s love that sent Jesus to Bethlehem and sends us to share his love with others.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son (John 3:16).
