“And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.”
Luke 2:40

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.
