Reindeer Games (Christmas)

• Greg Boyd

At times, we’re all sucked into the “reindeer games” of our culture – seeking money, success, possessions, reputations, or talent. We can also get sucked into the game of religion and feel like we’ll never be good enough for God. Reindeer games make us feel like misfits! Greg used a video clip from “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer & The Island of Misfit Toys” to remind us that God isn’t interested in the games of this world. They’re all geared toward winning happiness and worth from a source other than God. He encouraged us this Christmas season to opt out of the reindeer games and live free by getting our value and worth from Christ.

Focus Scripture:

  • Luke 6:20-23

    Looking at his disciples, he said:

    Blessed are you who are poor,
    for yours is the kingdom of God.
    Blessed are you who hunger now,
    for you will be satisfied.
    Blessed are you who weep now,
    for you will laugh.
    Blessed are you when people hate you,
    when they exclude you and insult you
    and reject your name as evil,
    because of the Son of Man.

    Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their ancestors treated the prophets.

"So many thanks for your wonderful messages and all you give to the world around you. I'm retired in Ecuador with no churches so really appreciate your online presence. So many Christians discourage questions, so this is refreshing, as are the Q&A sessions."
