THE CROOKED CHRISTMAS TREE
Listen weekdays at 7:40A and 1:30P during the month of December to ‘The Crooked Christmas Tree.’ Pastor and Author Damian Chandler shares the “Beautiful Meaning of Jesus’ Birth” and a family story of grace!!!
My family has a Christmas tradition. Every year we take the kids to a tree lot the day after thanksgiving and they chose a live Christmas tree.
Now that they are older, their choices are solid they’ve actually become little Tree conoseures . But when they were younger…well not so much. One year they chose the absolute ugliest tree I had ever seen. It was sparse and crooked and depressing. Everything a Christmas tree should never be. I tried with all my might to convince them to pick another but they weren’t having it. They were already in love.
I was mad. With all the good choices why would they chose that tree. Why should I pay my good money for that crooked tree. But somewhere in the process of putting the tree up I realized that tree was me.
Listen I know me intimately. I know my thoughts. I know what I’ve done. And I know my heart is infinitely more crooked than that’s trees branches. And knowing who I am, I am honestly floored to think that God payed such a high price for someone one like me.
So if your crookedness ever makes you question your worthiness remember that the God knows exactly what to do with Crooked things
