The Christmas season often arrives with a flurry of activities, leaving us more frazzled than festive. Our calendars become as packed as the malls, filled with events, gatherings, and last-minute shopping. However, it’s crucial to remember that a crowded schedule can lead to a cluttered mind and a weary heart. In this Man-to-Man podcast, Thriving Christmas, let’s aim to not just ‘do Christmas,’ but to “Thrive Christmas.”
- Prioritizing What Matters: The Bible, in Ephesians 5:15-16, teaches us to walk wisely and make the best use of our time. This wisdom extends to our holiday planning. Are we chasing the perfect Christmas at the expense of our peace?
- Evaluating Traditions: Examine your holiday customs. Do they bring joy and draw you closer to your loved ones and God, or have they become just another task?
- Simplifying Celebrations: The essence of Christmas is found in the humble birth of Jesus Christ, not in grandeur. Simplifying our approach can lead to a more meaningful holiday.
Why You Should Listen:
If you find yourself overwhelmed by the holiday hustle, this podcast is for you. We discuss how to navigate the season with intention, focusing on what truly matters. It’s about creating a Christmas that rejuvenates your spirit rather than depletes it.
Ephesians 5:15-16 – “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.”
- Setting Priorities: We’ll talk about identifying the non-negotiables of your Christmas and how to say no to less essential commitments.
- Reassessing Traditions: This segment focuses on reevaluating holiday traditions and letting go of those that no longer serve their purpose.
- Simplifying for Significance: We discuss how simplifying your Christmas can help focus on the season’s true meaning – the birth of Jesus.
- What activities or commitments can you let go of this Christmas to make room for what truly matters?
- How can prioritizing your schedule around God’s guidance bring peace to your holiday season?
Choose one event or commitment you’ve planned for this Christmas season and evaluate its importance. If it doesn’t contribute to the joy or the true meaning of the season, consider letting it go. Start this holiday season by thriving Christmas.
Join us in embracing a Christmas of intention and peace, focusing on the moments that truly matter and the miracle of Christ’s birth.
