This is a season of love, giving and caring. The reason for this season is all of the above, and most importantly – sacrifice. And so I often wonder why there is so much aggressiveness, anxiety and even fear ‘created’ around this period of the year especially in Africa or Nigeria where and when everybody sort of goes into a frenzy unnecessarily.
This season of CHRISTMAS should rather make us to be more reflective of our being, the love of God, and human co-existence. If only we will get to know the reason for this season, there will be more joy, loving and fullness of peace on earth, in our homes and society as well as our inner selves.
Let us remember as well as pray for the less privileged in our midst, and other parts of the country and the rest of the world. There are people in war ravaged areas, disaster zones; in crises stricken, disease infested, and impoverishment. Let us use this yuletide period to rather share a thought and reach out to these who do not even know it is Christmas.
