Question: How do I deal with the challenges of the Christmas season?
Answer:Good day to you, i appreciate your question regarding dealing with the challenges of this coming Christmas season.
No doubt it's a challenging time generally speaking for many, financially, socially and family wise because many person's have lost loved ones around this time. However, has you face this time with perhaps the most common challenge which is finances, be mindful of a few things.
Firstly, the society has always and will always use this time for gain and for commercial purposes. Evidently it is putting alot of pressure on persons to even go out of their way to buy things which they really dont need. But think they have to out do their neighbor or friends.
Secondly, we must seek to value what really is the purpose of this time rather than what the time is used for, Jesus according to historical accounts was born around this time, but very seldom gets the "gift attention" He deserves, therefore i suggest that we should remove the attention from us, what we can gain and seek to reestablish our walk and relationship with Him. Celebrate that He came, while fellowshiping with the less fortunate.
Third and final point, Don't get carried away by doing, particiapting in things around this time that is heavily advertised and suggested. Maintain your walk with God, pursue His undying love for you and Celebrate that He came.
