Transformed Lives

It's amazing. If I asked you what people were searching for this Christmas on the Internet what would say? It would be nice if people were searching for Truth, or how to commit a random act of kindness, but one of the most popular topics is the Grinch. People are looking for photos of the Grinch, Grinch quotes, and other such things related to the story of How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Granted How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a classic Christmas story in which good overcomes evil, and it is a story of transformation. I can understand the sentimentality. But I also think of the baby who came into the world  with lowly beginnings. He gave up being God to become man...for us. The shepherds searched for him. The three wise men searched for him. They found him, and it transformed their lives for real. Jesus came. He changed the world. His life and death still transforms the world today. If you search for him, you will find him.

"I believe that anyone would find The Inheritance a joy to read, no matter what your age or beliefs. This book mirrors the walk we have as Christians in a world filled with things that distract us from our Lord and Savior. Younger readers may not yet be able to grasp all of the symbolism that is intricately woven throughout Jejune's journey, but that will not take away from their enjoyment of the story." ~ Fiction Writing Review
