Lighting the World

Holidays Can Be Tough So We Light The World!

What is light? How do we transmit light? I always get depressed this time of year the most. It is because i am not as close to my family as i’d like to be. And that got lifted some last year when i married my soul mate and then became a family of our own. But it seems that the materialistic part of the holidays reminding me of our financial situation along with the distance i have with my family always gets me down. But i want you to know that we can lose ourselves in the service of your fellow man. If we lose ourselves in service we can honor the person this holiday season is supposed to be about, our Lord Jesus Christ.

#LightTheWorld A New Campaign of Service

Instead of being a downer and being so depressed we should look for ways to serve people. We should look for ways to honor the savior who served us all. As i think of this season while its not the actual birth of Christ we are celebrating him. I feel he is the greatest gift of all time, one from our personal father in heaven. We observe that the God of the universe was thinking of us and gave this most precious gift to the world, his son. And his son gave the most blessed gift to the world, his sacrifice on the Cross to save our souls. So instead of being down, smile, wash your face and go out and serve. I encourage you all to serve this holiday season! Use the service advent calendar provided here to find ways to serve others!
