Beyond the Manger

 Look beyond the manger;
see man’s Messiah.
Look beyond the swaddled child;
see Christ.
Look beyond gold, frankincense and myrrh;
accept the Gift of life.
Look beyond the Christmas tree;
see the Tree of life.
Look beyond Santa Claus;
embrace God’s salvation Clause.
Look beyond wining and dining;
east on the Bread of life and Living water.
Look beyond adornment and garb;
put on the robe of righteousness.
Look beyond being merry;
bask in the Joy of His salvation.
Look beyond the season;
celebrate the Reason!

What significance does Christmas hold for you?
