Beacon Christian School

Often this time of year, we think of H’s as in “Happy Holidays!” or “Ho! Ho! Ho!” While I love the holiday spirit, I have been thinking lately of the profound importance of three other H’s found in Philippians 2:8—“He humbled Himself . . . .” I am SO thankful that Jesus came as a baby, and I believe that humility would solve a host of the world’s problems. It is a quality we often lose sight of in our race for success as we see it, a success usually rated in terms of our own goals and objectives. Wouldn’t it be like a dream come true if everyone put those successes “on the back burner” and focused instead on the needs of those around us? We might have to wait for Heaven (another “H”) to fully realize those aspirations, but it is my hope and prayer that each of us will humbly follow the lead of the King of the Universe who took on humanity for us.
