It's Christmas: Happy Birthday Jesus!!
So, today is Christmas Day. Happy Birthday Jesus! I am so excited that Jesus has come into the world as a little baby. The Christmas season that started with Advent allows for all Christians around the world to start over clean. Though we are able to do that everyday of our lives, this season reminds us more than ever that Jesus came into the world to save mankind from the bonds of sin. Jesus came because he loved us so much and then died in the worst possible way imaginable. Let us remember Jesus in all things that we do. One of Jesus’ parables outlines for me the wonderful relationship between Father, Son, and Humanity. “A man had a fig tree, planted in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it, but did not find any. So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?’ “ ‘Sir,’ the man replied, ‘leave it alone for one more year, and I’ll dig around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.’ ”
