This Christmas season calls for all of us to more diligent. The world needs more love. Love needs to be active, engaged and fearless. This is the type of love Jesus speaks of in the Gospels. It requires us to be willing to stretch, bend and transform for the sake of love.
Christmas is a celebration of the God who came to serve. Jesus came not to be served but to serve and give his life as a ransom for man.
No matter your faith, or even lack of faith, during this Christmas season, let’s remember those who lost their lives serving others in the footsteps of Jesus. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends (John 15:13). Let’s pray that no more innocent lives are lost and remember those who have given the ultimate gift to the little children that they served…their very lives.
