Commentary: You can’t take Christ out of Christmas – Roland S. Martin

Here is an excellent commentary on the Christmas Season By Roland S. Martin. Worth the read…glad to see this on CNN.

Commentary: You can’t take Christ out of Christmas

He raises some good questions…

What if families decided to forgo gifts, and instead, used their shopping days giving back to those in need? What if more of us went into our closets, grabbed old toys and clothes, repackaged them, and provided them as gifts to those without? Instead of gorging on food, what if we used some of the dough to feed those who are in need?

I think it’s important not to lose your identity as a consumer during the Christmas Season (or in any season).  I fall into this trap too.  Even with my kids, I want to give them lots of presents at Christmas.  But I also want to open their eyes to the idea that we can help people too.

Merry Christmas!

I'm a family man at heart. I admit my world revolves around my wife Libby and our 3 hooligans...Eli, Eden and Silas. They are easy to love. I'm trying to learn to love the rest of you. I also like to ask questions.
