Customs of the people are vain
If you are remembering the birth of Jesus on Christmas day, then, shouldn't you worship Jesus; love Jesus; speak of Jesus; sing unto and about Jesus; and bring gifts unto Jesus, rather than, see who can decorate the prettiest 'tree', or receive gifts rather than give gifts, and party, party and more party?
The cutting down of trees and decorating them to 'so-call' honor The LORD?
3-For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
4-They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
5-They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.
Decorate your tree give gifts but...... NEVER forget the reason for the season, praise Christ for His gift of life first!
