It’s that time of the year again! Trees are being decorated, shops are stocked with festive treats, and TV adverts are on overdrive. But in all the cooking, wrapping and endless To-Do lists, how do we remember the true meaning of the season?
Here are a collection of quotes we pray will lift your spirit and shift your eyes back to Christ, this Christmas…
“Want to keep Christ in Christmas? Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, forgive the guilty, welcome the unwanted, care for the ill, love your enemies, and do unto others as you would have done unto you.” – Steve Maraboli
“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” – Charles Dickens
“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” – Calvin Coolidge
“Christmas gift suggestions: to your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.” – Oren Arnold
“For it is in giving that we receive.” – Francis of Assisi
“The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness. It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world’s busy life and become more interested in people than in things.” – Thomas S. Monson
“Best of all, Christmas means a spirit of love, a time when the love of God and the love of our fellow men should prevail over all hatred and bitterness, a time when our thoughts and deeds and the spirit of our lives manifest the presence of God.” – George F. McDougall
