December is here, and with it comes all the joys of Christmas – the gifts under the tree, the lights in the windows, and the family dinners. But what is the real meaning of Christmas? The true meaning of Christmas is love. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” The true meaning of Christmas is the celebration of this incredible act of love, the birth of Jesus Christ. Just as we are so loved and we were given the everlasting gift of Jesus, we should also demonstrate this love to others through our daily, purposeful acts of love.
