12 Days of 80's Christmas--Day 12

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Twelve Bands-a-Aiding,

The quintessential 80's Christmas song. Lots of celebrities singing about the people around the world who need our help. Kudos to these guys for trying to use their celebrity status to try and bring help to people in need.

Of course, Christmas is really about meeting our greatest need of all. The need to be reconciled to God. Peace on earth means peace between God and man. This peace could only come through God becoming man, and providing a way for this reconciliation. Peace on earth, indeed.

We need to feed the world. It's hard to listen to the gospel message with a growling stomach. But let's also feed them the food that satisfies the deepest hunger. That is what Christmas is for.
