Happy Sunday! I always feel as if the first Sunday in December begins the “Christmas Season.” I used to be a Scrooge about the whole thing, but a few years ago I felt impressed to get myself in a frame of mind to take advantage of the opportunities Christmas provides. I began by making up my mind to say “Ho, ho, ho!” as often as possible. Then I started looking for opportunities to just be kind to random people. It’s amazing what a smile and a “howdy” will do. Finally, I started putting actual Christmas music in our song services at church. For all of December, let’s sing about the miracle of the Incarnation.
I am starting today with my favorite Christmas song, which is not intended to be a Christmas song. It’s called “Heaven’s Humility.” Check out the Chorus:” This is Heaven’s humility, a Servant’s authority. You set aside Your crown, You laid Your glory down, with heaven’s humility.”
The second verse starts with my favorite line of all time: ” The voice that formed creation became a baby’s cry.” Let’s sing about the God who came into our mess so we could go to His glory. Merry Christmas!!! Ho, ho, ho!”
