Most often, this is the response of a teenager with some attitude. You tell them something and they respond, “So what?” Or in other words, how does that matter to me? I think this is a useful question for us to ask ourselves, especially when it comes to the things that we hold as most important in our lives. I don’t have any illusions that it’s a useful question from an upset teenager’s mouth; but, if we ask it seriously of ourselves, especially in regard to our faith, we can really be blessed.
Do you remember what Christmas morning felt like as a kid? Do you remember the excitement? Does the memory remind you of the suspense of wondering what might be under the Christmas tree for you? What amazing memories! All that joy, all that fun.
