Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Matthew 22:39

During Christmas, we are reminded that Jesus Christ is the light of the world. This year, we have an amazing opportunity to share that light by resolving to do the things Jesus Christ did. Every day leading up to Christmas, we will focus on a different Christlike behaviour and provide suggestions for ways we can emulate His example. You’re encouraged to participate using the following outline as you plan your Christmas activities.

  • Try leaving only encouraging comments on social media.

  • Pray for an opportunity today to show someone compassion.

  • Participate in a local sub-for-Santa for a family that could use some holiday cheer.

  • Find a GoFundMe.com account of a family or person in need and donate to the account.

  • Don’t be afraid to look a homeless person in the eye and smile.

  • Volunteer to babysit the children of a single parent so he or she can finish Christmas shopping.

  • Make a simple sacrifice for someone else, whether it’s giving up a seat on the train or letting someone else have the perfect parking space.
