This morning I heard a story on the radio of a woman who was out
Christmas shopping with her two children; after many hours of looking
at row after row of toys and everything else imaginable, and after hours
of hearing both her children asking for everything they saw on those many
shelves, she finally made it to the elevator with her two kids.
She was feeling what so many of us feel during the holiday season time of
the year—overwhelming pressure to go to every party, every housewarming,
taste all the holiday food and treats, get that perfect gift for every
single person on our shopping list, make 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 and there was already a crowd in the
car. She pushed her way into the car and dragged her two kids in with
her and all the bags of stuff. When the doors closed she couldn’t take it
anymore and stated, “Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be
found, strung up and shot.”
From the back of the car everyone heard a quiet, calm voice respond,
“Don’t worry. We already crucified him.”
For the rest of the trip down the elevator it 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 did
it,just think of how different this whole world would be.
