How can we maintain our sanity, weight, and Christ-like Identity while attending Christmas parties?
This time of the year, our schedules are overloaded with various holiday parties, with churches’ and children’s school plays, and families’ and friends’ gatherings. They are a couple decisions we can make to help us enjoy our fellowship time with family members, help us to celebrate the Christmas story revelation received during church services, and to help us socially interact with supervisors, staff members and co-workers at the various job parties.
First, we must remember the reason for this Holiday season (Jesus’ Birthday).
Second, we should schedule which parties, gatherings, and church events we will attend. We must remember that only Jehovah is omnipresent, and we are not.
Third, we should maintain our time management skills in relation to family commitments, God agenda for us and our work loads.
Finally, remember this Holiday season is about enjoying life in Christ.
‘Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion” (Ecclesiastes 5:18 KJV).
