Peace on Earth

Working about the true meaning of “Christmas” this morning, I began to think of “Peace on earth, good will toward men”.  It’s so easy to get caught up with the gift-giving, decorating and party-going that we overlook the real purpose of the celebration.  Once again, I began thinking about peace on earth and good will toward men.  Of course, I want peace on earth.  That should go without saying.  Then I began to think of good will toward men and I was reminded of political stories everywhere and how I felt divided about some of the players and certainly wasn’t thinking about good will toward them.  God is the only creator there is and He doesn’t pick and choose but only sees our perfection.  Psalms 145:9 reads “The Lord is good to all: and His tender mercies are over all His works.”

No where does He say “some”, but “all”.  I began praying to be meek and know the definitions mean humbly patient; not inclined to anger or resentment; yielding.  Now, that is how I can celebrate Christmas and pray to do so.
