The Christmas Ten Commandments

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 and gold.

7. Thou shalt not neglect the needy.
Share thy 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 hast become in spirit as a little one
art thou ready to enter into the kingdom of Heaven.

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