Martha had a very special guest—and lots of others, too—and she wanted it all to be just right. (Was she the Martha Stewart of her day?) When she poked her head into the living room to see why her sister wasn’t on duty, Jesus told her to chill. Keep it simple! Relax, come and join us for a while. After all, this is Jesus’ party so enjoy Him.
Could our Christmas be like that? Can we reduce the fuss and bother, keep it simple and enjoy Jesus more?
I smile when I remember a taxi driver who stopped for us several days ago. My nervousness as I waited for my companion to cross the busy street and join me must have been obvious, because the driver chided me, “Don’t worry; be happy!” Yes, thanks, brother! I needed that. And when he deposited us at the church, he said, “Praise the Lord!”
Yes, this is going to be a good Christmas .
