HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS

Why is it that we will sing Happy Birthday to everyone but Jesus? We need
to realize that it hurts Him and breaks His Heart when we ignore His
Birthday or treat it just as a time to get together with family and
friends and give gifts.
This wonderful Baby was born to give Light, Hope, Salvation, Peace, and
Joy to the world. We need to understand, however, that He is not a Baby
now. He grew up and became obedient to His Father and willingly laid down
His Life for you and I so that we might know the fullness of His Love.
The best way we can honor Him on His Birthday is by thanking Him for all
He has done for us and by being kind and patient to one another. The Bible
says, “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My
brethren, ye have done it unto Me”. Let’s give Jesus a special Birthday
Gift and spread His Love to family and friends and those who are lonely.
