woman was Christmas shopping with her two children.
After many hours of walking down
row after row of toys and after hours of hearing both her children
asking for everything they saw on those many shelves, she finally made
it to the store elevator with her two children in hand.
She was feeling what so many of us feel during the holiday season time
of the year, getting that perfect gift for every single person on our
shopping list, overwhelming pressure to go to every party, every
housewarming, taste all the holiday food and treats, making sure we
don't forget anyone on our card list, and the pressure of making sure we
respond to everyone who sent us a card.
Finally the elevator doors opened revealing a crowd in the car.
She pushed her way in and dragged her two kids and all her bags of stuff
in with her .
As the doors closed she couldn't take it anymore and blurted out,
"Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be found, strung up,
From the back of the car, a quiet calm voice responded, "Don't worry,
we've already crucified Him."
The rest of the trip down was so
quiet you could have heard a pin drop.
Don't forget this year to keep the One who started
this whole Christmas thing in your every thought, deed, purchase, and word.
If we all would, just think how much better this world would be.
Jesus is the reason for the season. Wise men still seek Him.
