The Christmas Spirit

Read this last night before bed... touched my heart.  You never know what a person is going through and how your words and actions can affect another.

"Being cordial literally starts from the heart, as I see it.  It begins with the deep-seated belief that the other person is important, genuinely significant, deserving of my undivided attention, my unrivaled interest, if only for a few seconds.  Encouraged by such a belief, I am prompted to be sensitive to that person's feelings.  If he is uneasy and self-conscious, cordiality alerts me to put him at ease.  If she is shy, cordiality provides a relief.  If he is bored, cordiality stimulates and invigorates him.  If she is sad, cordiality brings cheer.  What a needed and necessary virtue it is!'

Put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.  Colossians 3:14
