"Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did NOT die, he was a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew… and it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One!" (Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol)
Charles Dickens wrote a beautiful and moving classic story that tells of a man who has no joy or hope. He thinks only of his business and his money. He has no compassion or kindness for anyone else. The spirits of Christmas past and present remind him of Christmases past and show him the things he doesn't see in his world at present. Another spirit shows him his future if he stays on this path of selfishness. His eyes and his heart are opened. He is redeemed.
Even the most lost among us can be found. Wounds can be healed and when we open our hearts we can bring joy to others as well as ourselves. This is the message of Christmas. A little babe is born into a troubled world. God's gift to us is a Savior cradled in a cow's trough in a cold, smelly barn.
Through this one, born under a star's light, we are given New Life. Let us keep Christmas by entering into this new year ready to share this glorious story. Christ is our beginning. Christ is with us now. Christ will lead us into the future. We trust in the power of hope to conquer despair, we trust in the power of kindness to uproot cruelty, and we trust in the power of love to win out over hate. We trust in the Holy Child. Love one another. This is how we keep Christmas—shine his light, share his love, forgive as we have been forgiven and know there is more to come. The best is yet to be.
