Bright Lights during Busy Holidays
One of the best ways the devil is able to get to us is when we are distracted and occupied with worldly things. This is often certainly the case when it comes to the busy holiday season which is undoubtedly the busiest time of the year for most if not all.
We go out and get some shopping done. We have plenty of events and parties with families and friends. We may work a few extra hours to make up for the extra money we might spend. Whatever the case is, it is relatively easy to get side tracked by these matters and Satan moves in for the kill.
These things are not inherently wrong in and of themselves unless, of course, it involves sin. But the holiday season is no excuse to let our lights go down low. It should be just as bright as any other time of the year. If we let ourselves get too carried away and too distracted and we are not giving God time, then we will fall and fail him.
Let’s make sure that our lights are burning bright so that those who are lost and living in darkness can realize they need Jesus too. Let’s make sure that we put on the armor of God and keep it on, so we don’t fall to the schemes of the devil. Above all, let’s ensure that we keep God first and thank Him for all the wonderful blessings that we enjoy during this time of year. May God bless us all and may we endeavor to serve Him all the days of our lives.
