Christmas abundance

Throughout the year, but most particularly at the Christmas season, it's helpful to consider the following statement by the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy: "Spirituality lays open siege to materialism. On which side are we fighting?" Science and Health, p. 216.

For many years I found the Christmas season to be anything but one of joy and good cheer. The demands, pressures, and schedules of the month before Christmas seemed to stand in radical contrast to the peace and dominion reflected in the Bethlehem birth of Christ Jesus. In a world that seemed more receptive to radio commercials than angelic messages, where duty-givings seemed more important than love-givings, and where long lines encouraged anything but "on earth peace, good will toward men," Luke 2:14. I began to dread the coming of the Christmas month.
