Somewhere I read about several philosophers who were discussing the greatest possible tragedy one could experience in life. One philosopher suggested life’s greatest tragedy would be to murder a good friend and be imprisoned for life. Another thought it would be to lose one’s eyesight and remain blind. A third thought the betrayal at the hands of a trusted spouse would be the worst of all.
But the wisest philosopher concluded that while all these are grave misfortunes, the ultimate tragedy in life would be to miss God, and not even be aware of it. If this is true then millions of people are at this very minute experiencing life’s greatest tragedy. They are completely unaware that God loves them. In fact, He loves them so much “He gave His only begotten Son…” This is the fact we are now celebrating — the birth of Jesus Christ.
Jesus is the reason for the season. It is my prayer that everyone would come to know Jesus as his or her personal savior. If you would like to receive a copy of the Bible (to learn about God’s great love for mankind and His gift of Jesus) please call 443-7136.
