"The Christmas Ten Commandments" - Sunday, December 15th
THE CHRISTMAS TEN COMMANDMENTS
Thou shalt give your heart to Christ. Let Him be at the top of your Christmas list.
Thou shalt prepare your soul for Christmas. Don’t spend so much on gifts that your soul is forgotten.
Thou shalt not let Santa Claus replace Christ, thus robbing the day of its spiritual reality.
Thou shalt not burden the shop girl, the mailman, and the merchant with complaints and demands.
Thou shalt give yourself with your gift. This will increase its value a hundred fold, and he who receives it shall treasure it forever.
Thou shalt not value gifts received by their cost. Even the least expensive may signify love, and that is more priceless than silver and gold.
Thou shalt not neglect the needy. Share your blessings with many who will go hungry and cold unless you are generous.
Thou shalt not neglect your church. Its services highlight the true meaning of the season.
Thou shalt be as a little child. Not until you have become in spirit as a little one are you ready to enter into the kingdom of Heaven.
Thou shall not forget to share your joy, hope, peace and faith with those around you.
