Scripture of the Week

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. " John 1:1-5

Have you started your Christmas preperations, yet? Maybe you've done a little shopping, made a few gifts, or planned who will be coming for dinner. Have you started decorating for Christmas, yet? the tree, the ornaments, all the lights...they are just so beautiful. The Bible says that Christ is the light of the world, the one true light at Christmas and throughout the year.

We put up trees, stockings and treasured ornaments, every year. We decorate our homes inside and out. But, do we shine the one true Light of Christmas? Do we remember, portray, and lift up the one true Light? I have an idea, this year. One less decoration, one less party, one less gift, this year...this is my suggestion. Instead, one more act of kindness, one more person told, one more life reached, one more block of time spent with Him. This is how we shine the Light. This is how we really 'decorate' for Chirstmas.

Scripture of the week is a regular feature of A Faith Perspective, the faith booking blog sponsored by Scrapbook NEws and Review Magazine. We invite you to join us!
