Today is the birth of Jesus, but it may not seem like a day to celebrate after the problematic year. Well, I like to look at today as a day of renewal, which rekindles the Christian spirit within me.
Today I welcome you to do the same, reach out to others and show love and forgiveness. Make that phone call and make up with a friend or relation. Today is a day to live by our Christian values, sharing the gifts of love, joy, and happiness with the people we meet, whether in person or online.
At this time, what this world needs is for people to love one another, forgive one another, and for us all collectively to make peace.
It’s easy to look to our leaders and governments to change things, but if every one of us lived by the values of Jesus from today and through 2021, this world would be better than before.
Loving the people that hurt us is challenging, forgiving others can seem impossible at times. Still, we all have a responsibility in making this world a better place for ourselves, our families, and our friends.
May God bless you all.
