“And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”
Luke 2:10,11 KJV

My favorite radio station starts playing Christmas music on Thanksgiving Day and they play it until Christmas is over.  Think what would happen if they played Christmas music every day of the year.  I believe there would be a lot less violence and hatred and a lot more love in this world.

It reminds me of two friends who were talking to one another about Christmas.  One of the friends said “I’ll be glad when Christmas is over and we can put away the decorations for another year”.  I think that is what you and I do; we put away our love and forgiveness until Christmas time.

We love and share at Christmas time but we should love one another and share every day of the year.  Jesus wants us to have a happy and an abundant life but we can’t be happy if we don’t forgive one another.  We must always remember that none of us are perfect.  Let’s have compassion for one another. 

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).  Let’s make a special effort to be kind and loving to one another every day of the year not just at Christmas.  Let’s give unconditional love to each other.
