As we relaxed on Thanksgiving Day last year, I told Shannon that I thought I had actually come to enjoy it more than Christmas. How wrong is that when a Christian comes to dread celebrating his Savior’s birth because of how miserable the holiday is made by conspicuous consumerism?!

But that’s not someone else’s fault. That responsibility starts with ME.

In Jesus’ day, there was a demonic manifestation of greed or the trust in possessions that they called Mammon. This Advent and Christmas season, make sure that you’re worshiping at the correct altar.

Worship Fully. Spend Less. Give More. Love All.
