Revelation 21:5 says: “He who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new. Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
Several years ago several days before Christmas as I was preparing for my annual wrapping extravaganza where I will put on a movie and / or Christmas music and blitz through several hours of present wrapping. I cherish this time as it is a time of reflection and prayer for my family and closest friends as I wrap and decorate each gift.
On this particular year my friend suggested that if I hadn’t seen the movie ‘The Star of Bethlehem’ that I might enjoy watching it while I wrapped. Several minutes into the movie I realized that it was something I needed to watch with my family. Less than an hour later the 3 of us were picking our jaws off the ground as we sat in silence, overwhelmed at the magnificence of our Lord!
The Bethlehem star plays prominently at Christmas time as we celebrate the beginning of His life on earth. The stars are a significant piece of God’s handwriting and as the movie The Star of Bethlehem so beautifully documents they are trustworthy and true. As such, we can (and should) model our lives after what God has demonstrated for us. This week on Financial Grace we will discuss financial new beginnings.
