A Fresh Take on Christmas Commercialization

Steve Brown makes a beautiful statement in his December newsletter from Key Life re the commercialization of Christmas. "There are many smaller businesses that will or will not exist after Christmas based solely on how well they do at this time of year," he points out. "If the stores don't make it, there will be a lot of people out of jobs. . . . It isn't that commercialization is wrong . . . it's just so different than what God had in mind the first Christmas. . . . It's not just at Christmas. It's all the time. Everybody has an angle, a product to sell or a vision from God to change the world. It's important, they say, that we win elections, that we are beautiful, that we smell good, that others like us, that we buy the right stocks and read the right books. . . ."

Steve's insights are always worth reading. Check him out.
