Christmas is the time of the year where people buy gifts for love ones and friends. It is also a season of sharing and giving….in particular Giving. But why giving? The bible tells that more then two thousands years ago, God sent his only son, Jesus to come into this world to die for our sins. It is through his one death that we may have life and have it more abundantly. You might say…i’ve got no sins. But the bible says, Anyone Who Looks at his brother with hatred in his heart has committed murder against his brother. For that reason, God has sent his only Son Jesus to die on the cross for th redemption of mankind. Jesus did not only die for christians. He came to die for the world, which includes you and I. Today, Christmas is a reminder for all Christians that God GAVE his only son to die on our behalf so that we may have life. So gifiting is really a gesture to remind us what a great God we have and what a great saviour we have to die on cross for our sins…for the wages of sins is death.
6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Merry Christmas to you and Peace be with you and your family.
Found this Pine Cone fallen from from a Pine Tree near my estate in Singapore. Came as a real suprise to me when I found it lying on the floor. I have been passing by that areas for a while now but did not notice these pine trees until recently when I started paying more attention to my surrounding. How many times in life that we are all so busy and occupied with our own lives that we missed out on the simple yet beautiful things in life.
