For many people, Christmas is a stressful time of the year. With parties, gift exchanges, and shopping, there is a lot to think about.
Rev. Billy Graham has shared three tips that will keep your eyes on Jesus this holiday season.
1. Reflect on the Nativity Every Day
“Set aside time each day to focus on that first Christmas,” Graham wrote in a blog post on his ministry’s website.
“When you eat together as a family, pause not only to thank God for the gift of your food, but to thank Him for His greatest gift-the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ,” he said. “In addition, each day set aside a few minutes to read about the birth of Jesus from the Bible. (You can find this in Matthew 1-2 and Luke 1-2.).”
2. Make Time to Do Something Special
Graham said one of the best ways to slow down and relax during Christmas time is to enjoy an event that focuses on the birth of Christ.
“Set aside time for something special—a Christmas concert, for example, or a Christmas pageant in your church. Make sure you also attend your church’s regular services during the Christmas season; this will help you focus on Christ,” Graham said.
