The Christmas Ten Commandments

img_20161206_094412-1A lady at church sent the Christmas Ten Commandments to me. This is something we all should reflect upon.

The Christmas Ten Commandment

1,  Thou shalt give thy heart to Christ. Let Him be at the top of thy Christmas list.

2. Thou shalt prepare thy soul for Christmas. Spend not so much on gifts that thy soul is              forgotten.        .

3. Thou shalt not let Santa Claus replace Christ, thus robbing the day of its spiritual reality.

4. Thou shalt not burden the shop girl, the mailman, and the merchant with complaints and       demands.

5.  Thou shalt give thyself with thy gift. This will increase its value a hundred fold, and he              who receiveth it shall treasure it forever.

6. Thou shalt not value gifts received by their cost. Even the least expensive may signify              love, and that is more priceless than silver or gold.

7. Thou shalt not neglect the needy. Share the blessings with many who will go hungry              and cold unless thou are generous.

8. Thou shalt not neglect thy church. Its services highlight the true meaning of the                      season.

9. Thou shalt be as a little child. Not until thou has become in spirit as a little one art thou            ready to enter into the kingdom of Heaven.

10. Thou shall not forget to share the joy, peace, and faith with those around you.
