Today I saw this posted:
Somehow I think there are a lot more important things Jesus misses, but I could be wrong. You know, things like loving your neighbor instead of yelling at him because he says happy holidays instead of Merry Christmas? After all, the word Christmas isn't even in the Bible. Nowhere in scriptures are we told to celebrate Jesus' birth. Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas as much as the next person. I have my little nativity set right there under the tree as usual. I even have the wise men worshipping Jesus in the manger, although the Bible seems to indicate they didn't find him until he was between one and two years old, and living in a house. Matthew 2:11 "And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him..."
Nobody knows how many wise men there were, either. We only know three gifts were mentioned.
Now, this next Facebook find is one I totally agree with. I hate that it doesn't give the person's name who said it, as I don't like to use quotes without giving credit to the author (knowing how Facebook works, I am surprised somebody didn't credit Morgan Freeman with saying it). However, it struck such a chord with me that I am going to use it anyhow. If anyone can find out who said, or wrote, the following, please let me know.
