Everyone loves a quick fix.
All it takes for me is to eat one healthy meal and I’m already thinking… “I wonder how much weight I’ve lost?”
Things that are really important rarely happen quickly or easily:
A great career takes turning up to work every day.
A great sporting achievement takes hours of practice.
A great relationship takes patience and dedication.
With our world going through turmoil, God knew it was not going to be a quick fix, or an easy one. He made the ultimate sacrifice by allowing His Son to enter the world as a tiny baby boy.
Through Jesus’ life we are able to see the love of a Father for His children as well as the way we should live our own lives.
Christmas is a great time of celebration, and also a reminder that God is still working in our world today.
