It Ain’t All Pretty Bows and Ribbons

When we think of the cost of Christmas, most of us think about how much it is going to cost us and how long before we pay our credit cards off. But that’s the horizontal cost. The cost of presents that feel good for the moment but have very little lasting value.

There’s also a vertical cost to Christmas. And that cost was paid by the Son of God who “emptied Himself and took on the form of a slave” (Phi.2:7), the lowest of men.

What did Christmas cost Jesus? You’d be shocked, surprised, and humbled to know. He exchanged the praise and adoration of angels for the spittle of men.

And once you understand the true and terrible costs of Christmas, you’ll never view the holiday the same— which is a good thing.
