How to Take Christ Out of Christmas

This was too good not to share:

‎"How do you take Christ out of Christmas? You take Christ out of Christmas every time you:

Don’t take the high road.

Are less than loving, and patient, and kind.

Gossip, complain about, and judge others.

Are slow to listen and quick to anger.

And yes…. grump and moan and cry about everyone taking Christ out of Christmas, instead of simply showing the people kindness and goodwill and grace, and letting them see through your actions that Christ cannot be taken out of your Christmas because Christ is living in you. No one can take that away from you, no matter what they believe or what they celebrate or WHY they celebrate."

Thanks to Jennifer McGrail at The Path Less Taken and to M'Lou Green, who posted this on Facebook.

I'm stealing this--I wish I could remember from who--but people take the Christ out of Christmas every time they take the Christ out of Christianity.
