Everyone loves to brag about his team winning (or the rival team losing.) You hear things like, “My favorite team is (insert favorite team’s name); and my second favorite team is anyone playing against (insert rival team’s name)!”
Or maybe it is not a favorite team, but instead a favorite player that is bragged about… spouting off his or her stat line from the night before…
Although we may love it and gloat when a rival loses, it is not near as rewarding as celebrating when we win!
Simple reminder this week as we head into the CHRISTmas season… once the shepherds had met Jesus, we are told that they celebrated by telling everyone about it… I guarantee they would have lit up social media with the news!
The Scripture says, “Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning the child.” (Luke 2:17) It was a message of “great joy to all people.” (2:10)
What was that saying? That there is now “a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (2:11)
My point is simple: We need to be bragging about Jesus and what He has done for us as individuals and as a team/family! (Not spending so much time talking down about the rival…)
Make December a brag about Jesus month!
