What are you celebrating?

December 20, 2012

Last night as I was walking out the grocery store I noticed a lady who had all of the festive garb on for the season.  Her bright red Christmas sweater with reindeers on the front, a green scarf that went well with the sweater, and of course the Santa Claus hat, she was ready and into the season.

But there was something missing?  As she walked toward me and into the store, I noticed her spirit didn’t match her attire.  Her head was down, her shoulders were drooping, and her she seemed out of touch with the season.

Why was she dressed like that if she wasn’t ready to celebrate?  The season for some is a temporary celebration of parties, and gifts, and even family time.  But after the season is over what happens to the celebration, where has the spirit of joy and excitement gone?

What are you celebrating?  Here is a list of things we celebrate subconsciously:

  • Making a yellow light
  • Lunch time
  • Friday afternoon
  • The first sip
  • Music
  • Post work-out
  • Getting things done
  • Sleeping in
  • Friendship
  • Telling a story

(Marc & Angel Hack)

These are not bad things, in fact, they good, but how do we experience a true celebration in our lives?  I celebrate the season of Christmas with joy and excitement, but I also celebrate every day because of Christ in my life.  Come on…let’s celebrate!

Psalm 145:7They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.”
