Morning Thought: Watch out for temptation. Christmas is not a time to get drunk, but to be filled with the Spirit. God didn’t step down from heaven to earth so that you could act like a fool. Resist pressure from family and friends these holidays and have the guts to shine the light of Jesus. “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light…Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Eph. 5:8, 18-20).
