You know who is the most excited about this time of year?
Satan that’s who!
You see Satan loves all the happiness and joy being had by so many. It is precisely that joy that brings sadness to the hearts of so many others. Individuals who have lost a love one. Those who are dealing with health or family issues. People struggling with a housing or financial hardship or just those who truly have no one to share the holidays with. For them the holidays can be a time of sadness and loneness and that’s the window of opportunity Satan see as a chance to break their faith. But as a Christian we are warriors for Christ and we can help keep old Satan at bay. Try being extra nice to those around us, friends and strangers. Smile at a stranger. Take a day and volunteer at a homeless shelter. Take an afternoon and spend it with an elderly person who has no one else to spend time with. Call up a family member or friend you’ve haven’t spoken to in a while just to see how their doing. Do whatever you can because if you are lucky enough to know joy and happiness this holiday season by committing just one random act of kindness each day between now and Christmas you would be amazed at just how much of an impact you may have on someone’s life.
