Christmas can be a time of discontent as we try to keep up with what everyone around us is doing or expects us to do. If Christmas exhausts you financially, physically, emotionally and spiritually, learn the virtue of contentment from Philippians 4:11-13.
If spending less, buying fewer gifts and cutting back on activities will help you be content instead of exhausted at Christmas – go for it! Christmas only comes once a year, so do more of what makes you and the rest of your immediate family happy and less of what causes stress and discontent.
