In this time of Advent, we can get easily distracted. We can refocus by praying to God with thanks for His gift of salvation and by remembering the sacrifice of God's own son. While we focus on getting gifts and helping others, we often forget the reason we celebrate Christmas. We live as people of the world and we forget that we were saved by the Messiah. We can focus on the blessing we already have through Jesus while we anticipate the celebration of the greatest gift. We can also remember Jesus by seeing him in other people and caring for them first. Remember that as you go about your Advent activities.
