There is no way around it. And everyone knows it. Most people complain about the hassle of the holiday season. Many pay lip service to the over-commercialization of Christmas. But nothing changes.
Some people adorn bumper stickers or pins proclaiming Jesus as the “reason for the season”. Yet how can overspending, over-consuming, overeating, and overdoing be considered an appropriate way to observe the birthday of a Savior who was born into poverty, lived in obscurity and died in ignominy? (Hint: It can’t.)
How will you mark the occasion? Will you spend money you don’t have for gifts the recipients don’t need? Will you ask the question, “What do I give the person who has everything?” Or will you ask, “What can I give to the person who has nothing?”
We at Servants for Haiti humbly suggest that there is a better way to celebrate Christmas – the way Jesus did, through sacrificial giving to those in need. To be part of the Advent Conspiracy, visit our donations page.
