Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.
A great reminder in the midst of plans and lists we make for Christmas is to remember that it is the coming of Christ we are looking forward to. Our plans must be held with open hands. Our plans and lists are not the centre of the season. They are not the ones who hold it in their hands. They have a place but they are to help us in the waiting and the hoping, not the reason for it all. Christ will return and we need to hold our days and ideas and plans with open hands as we do not know when He will come.
