The Christmas season makes us think of goodwill toward men. Peace on Earth goodwill toward men. Christ came into the earthly world not only to bring peace but to bring humanity. The Christmas season celebrates the birth of Christ a spiritual leader whose teachings form the basics of religion. Christmas became a federal holiday in the USA in 1870. We must always remember that Christ is the reason for the Christmas season. Christmas is not all about celebrations and what kind of gifts you might receive.
Show Goodwill Toward Men
Love, show mercy and walk humbly with God. When you see someone in need of help always help them without expecting something in return. Be kind to people and have empathy for what they are going through. Help others to the best of your ability as you may have health issues of your own. Show kindness and tenderness in all of your acts and deeds with others. Be a cheerleader for people and never put other people down. Be compassionate, understanding, caring and always put yourself in the others persons shoes. Do not Judge others for God is the only judge of man.
Lift Up The Underdog
If you see someone being made fun of put the offender in his place and tell him to stop what he is doing. If someone is sick and cannot keep up with the rest of the group walk beside them. The underdog may be a great leader someday as he will know how not to treat others. If someone is crying ask them if they may like to talk to you about what is troubling them. Send cards and letters to people that live alone or have suffered the loss of a loved one lately. Praise people for a job well done as it will make their day. Put a smile on someones face everyday. Be slow to anger and quick to to forgive.
Give Your Time To Others
Do not charge elderly people for helping them as they cannot afford to pay out large amounts of money when they made only $4.00 dollars an hour or less years ago. If you will not help them unless you are paid you do not have a lot of compassion for the plights of others. Remember you will be old and the money you have won’t have much of its value left and I am sure you will want a compassionate person to help you out. I have heard of people charging elderly people $20.00 to $46.00 an hour just to help them buy groceries or clean their house. They should be ashamed of themselves. The people they are working for worked 4 hours or one whole day for what they want for just one hours work. Volunteer to help people with health problems mow their lawn, rake their leaves, wash their clothes, get groceries pick up their medicine and so much more. I enjoy helping others to the best of my abilities and I do not expect or want any payment from them and I find it very rewarding. Show goodwill to others by treating them as how you want to be treated someday.
Luke 2 – 14 Glory be to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
