I love Charlie Brown. He is one of my all-time favourite cartoon characters. I think there are a lot of lessons we can learn from this young man.
One great lesson is found in the movie “A Charlie Brown Christmas“. In the movie, Charlie Brown, in total frustration, yells out these infamous words:
“Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?”
Sadly, he has a point.
There are many who do not know what Christmas is all about.
For many, Christmas is just a time to spend money they don’t have on people they don’t even necessarily like that much.
For others, it is just another day on the calendar.
But for those of us who are followers of Christ, Christmas is the day that we remember that God chose to move in next door, into our run-down beat up, world-weary neighbourhood!
Christmas is the day that we celebrate God loving us so much that He became one of us so that we might one day live with Him!
Christmas is the day that we worship the One who came so that He could take our punishment so that we could have a relationship with Him!
In all the hustle and bustle of your celebrations over the next several days don’t forget what Christmas is all about!
