I love this quote. It really speaks to us about perspective. “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”- Abraham Lincoln
I pray that this Christmas may we focus on the positive and not the negative. Let us be known as givers and not as takers. If we are to be Jesus to the world, then let all our actions, words, and thoughts be His as well.
Jesus said, “No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.” – Luke 8:16
May this Christmas season be one that we will rejoice that “the Lord has come” and now lives in us.
