When Jesus was born, God decorated the skies with heavenly fireworks to introduce the Light of the world.
Considering God decorated the heavens -- His own dwelling place -- it seems no less fitting for us to dress up our homes with strings of lights, carols that worship His name, and symbols that help us celebrate the birth of His son.
Some say that the Christmas tree, the candles, and other such trimmings belong to the pagan past. I believe all things belong to God and we have simply reclaimed them for His glory!
As you look at your decorations, delight in the symbolism of the season and thank the Lord for the reminders of who He is and why He came.
