Christmas day is one of the most important days on the Christian calendar. This is so because it’s time for Christians to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the saviour of humankind and everything else on earth. As such, at Christmas, Christians ought to celebrate the special day in a uniquely good way by doing some acts of kindness.
While this automatically means you have to change how you go about your day, it does not mean that you have to leave everything that you love. If you love going to the gym, you can do so, if you love running early in the morning, you can do so, and if you love playing slots each morning, you can also do so. However, just note that you have to do at least one of the following acts of kindness so that you celebrate Christmas in the right way.
Make Food for Your Neighbour
It’s a given fact that on Christmas holiday many families will have plenty to eat. However, do not let that discourage you from doing an act of kindness this festive season. Just take some moments from your time to prepare food for your neighbours. Despite the fact that they have their own food, they will surely love the good gesture you show towards them. After all, the golden commandment states ‘Love thy neighbour’.
Visit the Elderly and Sick
Christmas ought to be a great time for many people but there are some people who fail to see the beauty of the day due to the circumstances they find themselves in. as such, it’s your responsibility as a good Christian to lighten the lives of such people and leave smiles on their faces. While your presence will most definitely be enough, just look for some nice things to present to them so that you make their Christmas holiday as worthwhile as I ought to be.
Leave a Happy Note for Someone to Find
In life, we have those people who we just connect with effortlessly and those people whom we so dearly want to connect with but despite all the efforts, the connection just doesn’t ignite. This is no doubt depressing but on Christmas day, just try to reignite the passion to connect. Write and leave a happy note for someone that you want to connect with but somehow fail to. This will leave a smile on their face but most importantly, the magic of Christmas may just be enough to help the two of you connect.
Make a Card for a Soldier
While we all work, eat, pray and laugh in ‘freedom’, you ought to remember that there are some people out there who are in desperate need of that very same freedom. It’s difficult though to reach these people but you can take a proactive step by making a card for soldiers who have committed and dedicated their lives to ensuring that we all have the freedom we deserve. The love you show in your letter may just be the motivation the soldier needs to soldier on and defeat the enemy hence free the unfree.
