The ‘saying’ – Much Ado About Nothing, I somewhat erroneously thought meant making a fuss over nothing.
It is of course a title to a Shakespearian play. And is something to do with the word ‘nothing’ really meaning ‘noting’.
Anyway I remain ignorant – not exactly motivated to find out about this play that is a mere vague schoolday’s memory.
For some Christmas and it’s true meaning is about ‘too much fuss over nothing’.
And indeed it may well be the case concerning the commercialisation of this time of year.
A child is born. The story is told.
The world is spiritually deaf dumb and blind. This child is no ordinary child.
9 That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.
He came into the world to give light to every man (to all humankind).
As humans are born into the world – so He too, took upon himself the form of a man, and came into the world.
Amidst the display of lights at this time of year, perhaps we could all pause to consider what true spiritual enlightenment really is.
Considering also it’s only source: Jesus Christ, whose entrance into this scene of time in the body of a child, meant that the message that brings the true light amidst the darkness of sin, could be proclaimed and received by all who are willing to worship Him.
“Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
Love and Peace
