Does Christ Mean More?

this poem from Heavenly Raindrops is so full of truth..

Heavenly Raindrops

Does Christ Mean MoreDoes Christ mean more
Than twinkling lights,
  Orchoruses
Of O Holy night?

Does seeking Him
Have priority
Over Santa
And festivities?

Does lining homes
With wreaths and mangers
Take up more time
Than loving neighbors?

Does chasing dreams
Of Christmas magic
  Make holidays
For some feel tragic?

There’s nothing wrong
With decorations,
Or caroling
With exaltation;

Of silent night
And nativities
That shine His light
Magnificently.

But seeking Christ
Amid Christmas-y
Must reign supreme
Above pageantry.

For mistletoe
And winter wonderland
Cannot replace
The warmth of Bethlehem.

A King was born,
And He came humbly
To show His love
For humanity.

Our greatest gift
To bestow on Him
Is rendered not
Through the Yuletide din.

What matters most
Amongst Christmas cheer
Is serving Christ;
To Him drawing near.

In Christ alone,
There is peace on earth;
His joy excels
Even Christmas…
