For me, Christmas is a time of reflection as well as a time of great joy! After all, Christmas isn't about material gifts under the tree, it's about our Father's gift, the celebration of the birth of Jesus, who died on the cross and rose from the dead, paying the price for our sins.

If you're drawn to reflection this time of year as I am, here are some of my favorite scriptures to meditate on.
