1.Put God First at Christmas “Jesus is the Reason for the Season”
2. Have no idols. Don’t let the busy season, or even Santa Claus, take your eyes off Jesus. Make time for family, friends, and gifts but God is always 1st
3. Honor God’s name. Keep “Christ” in Christmas. Christmas is the perfect season to put on Christian Christmas music and gently witness to family/friends.
4. Honor the Sabbath day. Remember the 1st commandment & take time to rest. Don’t skip church for family. Bring them with you!
5. Honor your parents by giving them gifts, spending time with them and visiting them. Choose to forgive if there is anything between you and your family.
6. Do not murder. Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus and New Life in Christ. If you’re angry with your brother, it is murder. Don’t get stressed out, depressed or angry. Tempers flair when busy. Keep calm and relaxed. Remember, God is in control.
7. Do not commit adultery. Adultery is more about lust. Don’t lust over other people’s possessions or life. Be satisfied and happy with the life you have, count your blessings and make “family” a priority during the Christmas season.
8. Do not steal. Make giving a priority. Remember God told us to think of the poor. People spend on their families and they forget to give to those less fortunate. Consider our Christmas project in the mountains of Chiapas. It’s the end of the year and all gifts are tax-deductible.
9. Don’t lie or speak evil of others. Make it a goal this year not to say a “bad word” about anyone…not even your President. Practice it for just 30 days.
10. Don’t covet. Be satisfied with what you have. Put others first. This season is supposed to be about sharing and caring, but too many make it about what they get.
