Wise men saw Jesus’ star in the east (Matthew 2:2).
Shepherds in the fields outside the village of Bethlehem saw the brilliant radiance of the Lord’s glory in the night sky (Luke 2:8, 9). John testified that Jesus is the “true Light” (John 1:9). No wonder Christmas celebrations include a multitude of lights!
Christmas also involves gift-giving. Times of great joy were often accompanied by the giving of gifts (Nehemiah 8:10; Esther 9:22). This Christmas, as you enjoy the lights and give and receive gifts, be sure you honor the One who is the true Light of the World and the Greatest of All Gifts – Jesus Christ.
