Avoiding Buyer's Remorse

All I want for Christmas is _______________.

That’s right. Fill in the blank.

The one thing I don’t want is buyer’s remorse.

Remorse usually happens when some desire grows into that sometimes unnamed or undefined or under-refined “something” that will solve that “something” that is termed an “idol.”

Advent and Christmastime are wrapped with desires that can easily run amuck. It might be a good time to examine what and why is filled in the above blank space.

PORTAL TO HEAVEN: Ironically, Christmas can easily cross the thin line from giving to taking - the antithesis of what rocked his cradle and the world.

just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many…For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. Matthew 20:28 NIV, John 3:16 NIV
