As we approach Christmas, what grabs our attention during this season? As I was battling traffic during a routine stop at Starbucks last night, I realized that I tend to focus on the chaos and hassle that fills the days before Christmas (glad I did my shopping online this year). Sometimes, I can focus on the busyness of the season — family coming and going, travel, events, traditions. Sometimes, I focus on the much needed break from regular routine that is approaching.
But what should grab my attention?
“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.” (Philippians 2.5-7)
Are you amazed that GOD chose to become a man? Let that grab your attention, and ponder that thought this Christmas.
