As Christmas approaches let the love and emotion we feel for Jesus affect our relationships with other people.  That is easy for the people who are our family and close friends, but Jesus calls us to love others as well.

I read something today that said:

“If you dislike somebody because they are different from you (and I would add because they have offended us) get on your knees and repent until you can say that you love them…”

The Little One of the manger calls us to do some difficult stuff…begin through repentance…because repentance puts all of us on the same level…some of us it brings up while others of us, it brings us back down.

Peace
