10 Guidelines for Keeping Christ in Christmas

TAKE time to be alone and ponder your relationship with Christ.

READ the story of Jesus’ birth and note how people responded–Mary, Joseph, the
shepherds, Simeon and Anna.

PRAISE God at Christmas. Join other Christians in celebrations of music and praise.

HELP those in need at Christmas. Follow the example of Jesus whose heart was filled with compassion for those who were suffering.

KEEP your “to do” list as short as possible. Limit your social obligations so there is time for reflections.

USE cash when you buy gifts to avoid holiday debt. Invite your relatives to support a mission cause instead of giving you a gift.

TELL others about the Savior. Find opportunities to give a tract or a Bible.

REMEMBER Christ’s church around the world. Some of these churches are enduring great hardship.

LIVE like Christ in this season. Be compassionate. Be forgiving (especially in mall parking lots and with harassed sales staff). Be sensitive to the people with whom you work and play.

BE JOYFUL at Christmas! You are celebrating the greatest event in the history of the world–the arrival of God in human form.
