A Christmas Story!

Well tonight was a good time at Bible Study as we watched the Christmas episode of Andy Griffith entitled "The Christmas Story" which features the mean old store owner named Ben Weaver who plays the part of a scrooge until the spirit of giving takes over and gives him a new heart. We then found it very easy to compare the story to what Jesus does with us. He changes us and gives us a new heart as we place our faith in Him, and then we find that we are so grateful for what He has given to us that we in turn want to give to others. From a manger to the cross, He couldn't have shown us any more love than He did. May the spirit of that first Christmas capture us and our hearts as we continue to learn how to love and give just like Jesus did for us.
