One might argue that the greatest celebration of all time will occur when Jesus comes back for a second time. But, I would propose that we need to celebrate small things just as much. The greatest celebration might be when a child got straight A's. Or, when a baby was born. Or, when a child read his first book.
We could consider celebrating more than what might be considered normal. You have a dad? Celebrate by thanking God. Have a penny? Wear clothes? Celebrate! It is great to celebrate the Advent. However, do not forget that you can celebrate almost everything in life with zeal.
|Congrats David! We are proud of you!|
David can celebrate the positive things that have happened in his life. He's worked hard to accomplish a lot. However, he can also celebrate the negative things that have happened in his life. He can even celebrate that he was homeless! It's part of his life and his story.
What's in your life, your story, that needs to be celebrated?
