you were born so i might live

if it were me, i would’ve said screw it and started over.

if it were me, i would’ve broken my promise.

if it were me, there’s no way i would’ve done what he did.

god, the creator of everything who could destroy and recreate the human race with one sentence, had every right to do just that. if it were me, that’s what would’ve happened.

but god had such a desire to be with his creation that he sent his son to be with them with the sole intent of dying the most embarrassing, humiliating, and painful death known to man. and he did all of that just so that he could hang out with us and we could hang out with him.

instead of destroying us, he redeemed us.

instead of starting over, he kept going.

instead of no hope, he gave us the hope of the world.

that’s christmas.

that’s today.

say your prayers and take your vitamins.

have a merry christmas.
