Have Yourself a Potato Chip Christmas
Jesus in a potato chip? Or a banana? In a candy bar? How about an iron? Silly as it sounds, some people claim to see Jesus in many everyday objects.
I don’t know about you, but I have never seen Jesus in my Pringles. On the other hand, maybe I’m not looking hard enough. Didn’t Jesus say, “I am with you always”? So what’s wrong with looking at the world through Jesus colored glasses?
Can you see Jesus in Christmas? During the holidays we can easily miss seeing Jesus if we are not looking for him. But if we look closely, we can clearly see there is more to Christmas than meets the eye. Jesus gave freely to others without expecting anything in return. Christmas is about giving to others like Jesus did—wholly, unconditionally, and lovingly.
So, when you sit down to open your presents this year, take a moment to reflect on all the blessings Jesus has given to you. Never forget that he is with you. Always.
It just depends on your perspective.
