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.

Merry Christmas!

  1. I see Jesus in the eyes of the homeless, the mentally ill having to live on the street because they have no where to go and live in a society that has given up on them. I seen Jesus in the hearts of those forgotten in the wards of hospitals. I see Jesus in the broken the hungry the unwanted. I read in my Bible that I should see Jesus in all of these places. Now I have created a tool that anyone can use to help others to see Jesus in themselves. It is called “Life’s Secret”. Find it at Signed, Terry Dorn – Chaplain to the Streets
