This Christmas season, I've witnessed many random and spontaneous acts of kindness, from a lady paying for an elder gentleman's groceries to others giving gifts at work. I love it! It's how the world should always be.
Why is it that people feel like they should be extra nice to strangers around Christmas? What's with this Christmas Spirit thing, anyway?
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God.
So next time you take a moment to consider how you interact with the world and with the people around you, think about bringing some Christmas Spirit with you, into the New Year.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
