It is written in the nature of he human
soul that when it despises one and carried
about harsh feeling, it closes up the foun-

go home and “sin no more.”
? These are days when sons and dauglt-
1 ers, yes whole families will be gathered
a r o u n d the family hearthstone
for a reason of rejoicing and happiness.
Only one thing can prevent this, and
lhat is the spirit that kills Christmas for ev-
eryone—the spirit of hate and unforgive-
ness that might wrangle in one’s breast.
Remove the ill-feeling if you have it,
go out and look every one in the face, for-
give all others whom you think have sin-
ned against you, and you will find that

Somehow there is within each of us
this impulse to respond to the good, and
that is something that should make all of us
try and appeal tc that good, rather than
stir up the bad that might register itself.
Somehow a- seasons like Christmas,
there is a disposition to disseminate cheer
and good will among our fellow men. The
tongue seems less inclined to speak e-vil
.and the hand is withdrawn from writing in-
dictments against those who have hearts
the same as do we.
, Chritmas should be a time of forgiv-
ing each other and wiping clean the old
slate of bad feelings for another. If one has
been carrying about in their souls these
mas only ns yourself being the recipient of
something, you will miss entirely the whole
mark. “He became poor” for us. That is
what makes Christmas—thinking of others.
