I read the news today oh boy
A Wal-Mart worker was killed black Friday
All he did was unlock the door
2000 people trampled him to death.
So...... black Friday is the start of the Christmas Shopping season.
Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus.
Yes everyone knows it is not really the birthday of Jesus but early Christians needed to replace the winter pagan celebration with something to promote conversions. So, it is the "Celebration" of the birth of the Christ. Will these heartfelt gifts hold even more meaning for the people both giving and receiving knowing that a person WAS KILLED in order to purchase world of war 2 for junior to play with on Christmas morning? To get in such a frenzy over shopping?????
What would Jesus do???
ps- I figured it out after typing this. He would forgive them of course. Probably why he is a better person than I am.
