Jesus humbled Himself and came to the Earth as a baby. He was God in Heaven but He selflessly gave of Himself so He could come and die on the Cross. For us.
Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men, being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Philippians 2:5-8
Christmas is for giving, and I mean of the selfless kind.
We live in a country where Christmas has become so commercialized and the latest and greatest toys are enticing our kid’s hearts. In the midst of our gift-giving and our holiday celebrations, let us remember the heart behind Christmas, keeping with an attitude of selfless giving…just as Jesus did.
