So why do we buy so much?
Christmas isn’t a display,
So why display so much?
Christmas isn’t about seeing the people you love most,
Don’t we see them all of the time?
Christmas isn’t about creating memories,
So why take pictures now?
Christmas is not Thanksgiving,
So why do we have a feast?
Buy no presents,
Put up no decorations,
Visit no relatives,
Use no film,
Eat no special foods,
And you may discover that Christmas is not actually about us.
Jesus did not live his life for himself, but for us.
So why do we live our lives for ourselves, and not for him?
