The Heart of Christmas

A young woman and a senior pray on Christmas

And she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.—Luke 2:7

Some Christmases are more modest and lean than others. But lavish gifts and expensive treats are not what truly matters; the heart of Christmas is humble. The only thing that matters is your worship and devotion to God.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, I recognize that your many blessings float down from above like the beautiful snow. Because of my faith, I have all that I need to be happy.
