Giving It All

And being found in appearance as a man, 
He humbled Himself and became obedient to 
the point of death, even the death of the cross.
- Philippians 2: 8

The heart of the very first Christmas on earth was sacrifice.  Unlike many
other Christmases, this year’s season of celebration though joyful as it may
be comes with a strong reminder: To live a life with readiness to suffer and
endure hardships in order that others may have life just as Jesus did.
