The Holidays are meant for family. Family gatherings are very wonderful, but tend to make some feel obligated, guilty, or pressured and such....
This is a great time to consider reconciliation. Who among you are you on rocky terms with or even estranged from?
Jesus is our BEST example:
Jesus was sent into this world to reconcile the world to God. He came to serve and not be served. He is love, peace, protector, self-controlled, gives unconditional love, and keeps no record of wrongs.
Predetermine before you walk into your family Christmas that you will walk in pure love with NO expectations or record or wrongs.
