It starts off as something small, maybe seemingly insignificant…but as it gathers momentum it becomes larger and larger. That’s the snowball effect. One small action can cause bigger and bigger reactions.
Christmas is a big deal! We celebrate all month with extravagant parties, elaborate decorations, and much more. Everything is leading up to December 25th…the biggest day of the year!
But it didn’t start big. In fact it might surprise you how we got here. The prophecies of a coming Messiah were dismissed as crazy ideas. The family trees of Mary and Joseph were full of questionable characters. The story of a baby born in a Bethlehem stable seemed insignificant when it happened. The impact of Jesus’ birth on Mary, Joseph and the shepherds was just the beginning. The snowball was growing and the impact of this event continues today.
