Be Linus

Charlie Brown asked a simple question “Doesn’t anyone know what Christmas is all about?” Linus then steps on the scene and provides the answer to the meaning of Christmas. Linus quotes Luke 2:1 – 20. Linus seems to always be level headed (except when it comes to the Great Pumpkin), we need more young people like him in the world.

Linus has it right, Christmas is a time to remember the wonderful gift God sent to us. God in the flesh, Emmanuel (God with us). Christmas is not a time to catch up or out do “the Jones”, but a time of good tidings of great joy (Joy to the world the Lord is come). A time of peace on earth and good will to men. A time for kindness and not rudeness, a time for togetherness and not strife, and a time for LOVE and not hate. A time when families should sit and reflect on how blessed we truly are to have one another for one more Christmas. What I would give to have one more Christmas with my mom and other family and friends who have passed away.

What have you done with the gift God sent? Only you can answer that question, because that is a personal question. May God Bless you all in the coming year and may this be the year for you and I to serve God with a refresh fire within us and spread the same message Linus did when Charlie Brown asked a very import question. If you know what Christmas is all about, then step to center stage and be a Linus…
