December 16th – The Gift of Joy

We are supposed to be happy around Christmas time, but where is the room for happiness when the stress of deadlines piles up, when preparations for the party have to be made, when gifts need to be wrapped, when family strife doesn’t take a break for the holidays, etc? On Sunday, December 16th, God tells you that with him is the gift of joy. True joy is not found in the trappings of the holiday; true joy is to see Jesus as your Savior.
