Glory to God in the Highest (Luke 2:14)
If we are to take the metaphysical meaning of Christmas seriously, we would do well to eschew all things material in the celebration of it. What if we completely spiritualized all of Christmas? There would no need for gift exchange; no need for holiday dinners; no need for the hustle and bustle that creates so much stress and distress in our lives. When we come to realize how to glorify God in the highest, it will naturally follow that there will be peace on earth and good will toward men.
