He is Conceived, the Greatest Gift

Remembering the pregnant woman this season makes us remember the greatest priceless gift we received.
21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,[a] because he will save his people from their sins.”22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”[b] (which means “God with us”). Matthew 1:21-23

Never Forget the Old Ones

The seniors, they are called. We have a responsibility to show kindness, respect and to take care of the elderly. Yes, we are to respect all people, but there is a certain type of respect that we give to the elderly. There is a certain way we talk to them and give honor to them. Old aged people have been through many different experiences that will help us. So remembering them in this season will make us always remember that we’re alive for a reason. Giving them gift this Christmas is just the beginning.
Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone Psalm 71:9
