But for the next six weeks, while you’re decking halls, shopping, baking, shopping, caroling, tree-trimming, shopping some more and getting more and more frazzled…take time to concentrate on the “Reason for the Season” and glean some much needed encouragement from Scripture.

    What translations are these pulled from? Not seeing the most important of these (John 8) written as it is here.
