Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first. (George Matthew Adams, newspaper columnist)

As you open gifts today, think of these words from Adams: “The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years.” This, indeed, is the greatest of all Christmas gifts!

 [Mary] will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins (Matthew 1:21).
