WRAPPED IN LOVE - December 15, 2005

Do you have your Christmas shopping finished?

Do you dread going to a mall? It is very frustrating!

There are so many people it is hard to walk very fast. The public address system is blaring music--Jingle Bells from one store, O Little Town of Bethlehem from another store. There are no empty benches to sit long enough to check my list.

One young mother looked like a walking Christmas tree, laden down with packages, even hanging from both arms. She could hardly see where she was going. Then there was the small child clinging to her coat. It was something Norman Rockwell could use in a painting. What would be the title? He would probably use something like “Christmas Peace?”

Will we find peace this Christmas? Christmas is two weeks away and there is still so much to do! There are two kinds of peace, as I see it, passive peace and active peace.

Passive peace suggests no-stress, no-conflict, no strain living. About the only way this kind can be found is if we live in isolation. Active peace is a spiritual peace that we get when we are engaged in the welfare of others.

We will find our peace this Christmas, depending on how much we are giving of ourselves. It will come from involvement, not withdrawal; giving, not receiving; not from wrapping packages, but from wrapping people in our love.
