Oh Lord, help us to keep our eyes fixed upon You during this Christmas season and every day of the year also. So many people are making money on this holiday through Santa Clause, Elf’s, reindeer, and the North Pole, and it saddens me. Even people who profess to know You tell their kids that Santa is coming and to be good. Not to be good for You, but for a fictional character. This is idolatry and people cannot even see this as a problem. And so we have people bringing their kids to the mall and other places, in order to sit on Santa’s lap. Young kids do this and tell him what they most desire for Christmas and in life. What mockery this is to You and Your throne. Truly, these parents that lead these children to do this don’t know You at all, for if they did, they would stop telling their kids these lies. And instead, they would teach their children to seek You with their whole hearts. Not to a man that is not real, but to You, my Lord. I love You, God, and wish that people throughout the world would also learn to love You. So please come and cast these idols and false gods out from people’s lives. This I pray. Amen.
Hosea 11:1 (KJV)
1 When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.
When Jesus was a baby, His parents went into Egypt as directed by the Father through an angel. The Lord was protected.
