More on Making the Most of Advent

Here is another thought on making the most of this Christmas season in light of a biblical worldview.

Beware temptations to covetousness and greed which surround the cultural trappings of Christmas. Jesus warns in Luke 12:15 Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses. Madison Avenue bombards us daily with just the opposite message. Ask God to help you not let the world squeeze you into such a treacherous mold (Rom. 12:2).

How will you guard your heart from the temptation to excess during this holiday season? God will give you grace to exercise self-control in all things as you rely on His Holy Spirit.
