"Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things." Philippians 4:8

I thought this verse was appropriate as we embrace the most joyous season of all - Christmas. May our minds and hearts be consumed with God's greatest gift - Jesus and may we meditate on His birth and the gift of salvation, grace, mercy and hope.

Many times the rush and busyness of the season tries to crowd out the joy of the season. "I want" attitudes, impatience, crowds and stress clamor for our attention. May our minds be set to "meditate on these things" and as the things that are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, full of virtue and praise become fixed in our hearts, we can spread true Christmas joy to those we come in contact with!
