a favorite Christmas ornament

Sunday, 18 December

But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. Matthew 6:20

You can learn a great deal about a person by looking at the ornaments on their Christmas tree: antique ones, handed down from generation to generation; handmade ones, from a beloved grandparent or child; purchased ones, specific to a memory, hobby, or occupation. Many of each of our ornaments also hold a deeper significance: they make us ready. They are small witnesses to every viewer of an eternal truth…God showed His love for us in this- Christ Jesus come to our world.
