A Christmas Inspirational Story to Ignite the True Meaning of Christmas
At Christmas time, Christians everywhere seek a Christmas inspirational story that brings them closer to one another and closer to Jesus.
Whether the story is a fiction (not true) or non-fiction (true) inspirational Christmas story doesn't matter.
How about sharing your personal favorite inspirational Christmas story with us?
What matters most to people celebrating Christmas is the heart-felt feelings that dominate during the holidays.
Yet, in recent years, material consumption and the need to show our love through excessive gift giving has dominated many people's lives.
For people worldwide, 2008 promised to be a Christmas that needed more than one Christmas inspirational story to ease the financial woes of so many Americans.
However, financial matters can often be overridden by matters of the heart and spirit. With the election of Barack Obama as the new US President, the world could rejoice in his story, which showed that anything and everything is still possible in the USA.
I viewed our current economic crisis as a great opportunity to bring the holy back into holidays. Most Americans have gone way overboard in giving material, costly Christmas gifts that has created staggering credit card debt.
The 2008 Christmas holiday season promised to be one where consumers have a chance to rekindle the true meaning of the Christmas spirit, as best illustrated in this true, inspiring Christmas story about a family Christmas dinner at a diner. It brought tears to my eyes and I'm grateful to the honesty of the author.
Many of us have stories that humble us to the core of our being, but it takes authors, writers, and storytellers willing to make themselves vulnerable to share their truths.
When you think about it, as the story above showed, in one way or the other, we're all one.
You might be thinking, "What does he mean by we're all one?"
In one of my books I wrote the following rhyming verse, which isn't a Christmas inspirational story but has some of the essence of Christmas stories:See God Everywhere
In every heart God grows a home,
whether in El Paso, Palestine, or far-away Rome.
Deep in the jungle, of cement and stone;
or in moss covered woods where rabbits sit on thrones.
If you're tired of war and want more fun,
see others as brothers and put away your guns.
Each of us is equal,
whether rich or poor,
in jail or free.
God's residence in our hearts
creates one world community.
It's so hard to keep remembering that what separates us from one another is our preconceived ideas of who other people are by how we judge their appearances and behavior.
But during the Christmas season, we get to remember, if we're lucky, what Jesus, Buddha, Gandhi and all the great spiritual teachers want us to remember, i.e., God resides in every heart, no matter what outside appearnces are.
