Jesus vs. Santa

Why Jesus is Better Than Santa Claus

By Rev. James Spellman of Ohio

*Santa lives at the North Pole… JESUS is everywhere.

*Santa rides in a sleigh… JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.

*Santa comes but once a year… JESUS is an ever present help.

*Santa fills your stockings with goodies… JESUS supplies all your needs.

*You have to wait in line to see Santa… JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.

*Santa lets you sit on his lap… JESUS lets you rest in His arms.

*Santa doesn’t know your name, all he can say is "Hi little boy or girl, what’s your name?"… JESUS knew our name before we did. Not only does He know our name, He knows our address too. He knows our history and future and He even knows how many hairs are on our head.

*Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly… JESUS has a heart full of love.

*All Santa can offer is HO HO HO… JESUS offers health, help and hope.

*Santa says "You better not cry"… JESUS says "Cast all your cares on me for I care for you."

*Santa’s little helpers make toys… JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes and builds mansions.

*Santa may make you chuckle but…JESUS gives you a joy that is your strength.

*While Santa puts gifts under your tree… JESUS became our gift and died on the tree.

Its obvious there is really no comparison! Jesus is still the reason for the season. Yes, Jesus is better, he is even better than Santa Claus.

 

I found this poem over at the 1+1+1=1 blog.  It is part of a lovely FREE Christmas Symbols lapbook she has put together!  I just LOVE the poem!  It completely speaks to how I feel about Christmas in my heart!  Make sure to spot by the 1+1+1=1 blog and thank her for the great lapbook if you use it!

    I am not a Christian, yet I can fully understand this poem and would love for others to see that there is so much more to Winter, the month of December and life in general than our vain desires for Santa to fulfill our wish lists and to have more than the other "kids" on the block.
    Thank you for sharing this poem. Thank you for sharing your beautiful perspective on homeschool in general. You are an inspiration to many.
