Well.. I think that we could keep with the Christmas “thing” ..
How would be the world if everyone keep the “Christmas spirit” ?
I guess that we would be more patient, sensible, care others, food other that do not have food to eat or opportunities to work and buy their food.
Perhaps we avoid to fight each other and enjoy a good meal, with family, relatives.. and, of course, a lot of child running around, playing.
Can you imagine everybody be gently with others, just because it is Christmas?
I think that we could keep this “Christmas thing”….
I guess that the Child Birth that we are celebrating told us something about it:
Matthew 5:43-48 – New International Version (NIV)
Love for Enemies
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
And Paul also told us something:
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control.
As you can see, there are recomendations to us to became more gentle, good and love others.
I really wish you that you keep the Christmas “thing” with you all New Year. I have a tip fo r you: invite the person having the birthday, Jesus Christ, to be with you.
John 14:23 New International Version (NIV)
23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.
Let’s finish with music:
