Who Is Better Than Santa?

Santa is said to live at the North Pole,
Jesus is everywhere (Colossians 1:17)

Santa is said to ride in a sleigh,
Jesus walks on water (Matthew 14:25).

Santa comes but once a year,
Jesus is an ever present help (Psalm 46:1).

Santa fills your stockings with goodies,
Jesus supplies all your needs (Philippians 4:19).

Santa comes down your chimney uninvited,
Jesus stands at your door and knocks, and then enters your heart when invited (Revelation 3:20).

You have to wait in line to see a Santa,
Jesus is as close as the mention of his name .

Santa is shown with a belly like a bowl full of jelly,
Jesus has a heart full of love (1 John 3:16).

All any Santa can offer is 'Ho, ho, ho',
Jesus offers health, help and hope (John 6:37-40).

Santa says 'you'd better not cry',
Jesus says 'cast all your cares on me for I care for you' (Psalm 55:22).

Santa's little helpers make toys,
Jesus makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes and builds mansions.

Santa may make you chuckle,
Jesus gives you joy that is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10).

Children think that Santa puts gifts under the tree,
Jesus became our gift and died on a tree (1 Peter 2:24).
