Make Christmas A Habit

Vincent Egoro

The idea of Christmas is centred on personal sacrifice. The giving of oneself without the expectation of anything in return. Giving without expecting anything in return is an act of humility. As you give this Christmas, how do you feel when your gifts are not reciprocated? Do you also expect others to give back to you?

The bible says in 2 Corinthians 9:7 “Let each one [give] as he has made up his own mind and purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or sorrowfully or under compulsion, for God loves (He [a]takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without) a cheerful (joyous, “prompt to do it”) giver [whose heart is in his giving].”

If we all practice Christmas as a habit, the world would be lovelier. As John Carver III wrote; “what if we, as a society practiced Christmas all year? Here…

Do we really need a reason to show kindness unto others? I don’t think so. But whether you do, or you don’t here are 14 quotes to motivate you into being more kind this month.

Just One Hour

One hour a day would in ten years make an uninformed person a well-informed one.

In an hour you could read twenty pages thoughtfully, over seven thousand pages in a year.

In an hour you could right all your wrongs.

An hour a day might make all the difference between bare existence and useful, happy living.

An hour a day might make and yes!It has made someone rise from obscurity to limelight.

If in an hour a day we can achieve these much, consider, then, the mighty possibilities of two-four-six hours a day that are, on the average, thrown away by men and women in the restless desire for fun and diversion!

What Is Your ‘One Thing’?

Finally December is here. We all had great plans in Juanuary. Did we achieve all of them? If you did, then kudos to you. I didn’t achieve all my plans this year, and I know there are still people out there who didn’t too.
If you didn’t like me, don’t give up in despair, all hope isn’t lost yet. We still have 30 days to try and make our lives count. But it will only work out if we focus. So what is that one thing you will focus on?

“The man who seeks one thing in life, and but one, May hope to achieve it before life be done; But he who seeks all things, wherever he goes, Only reaps from the hopes which around him he sows, A harvest of barren regrets”. – Owen Meredith.

I have discovered that, the difference between those who succeed and those who fail is not in the amount of work they each do, but in the amount of intelligent work. Many of us who do not achieve much, do enough to achieve grand success; but we labour at haphazard, building up with one hand only to tear down with the other. We do not grasp circumstances and change them into opportunities.

Focus folks, is the name of the game in…
