The house cleaning people were two hours late, so I thought, “They got their tips from the last customer; no need to tip them today.” But I tipped them anyway, though I had no desire to be seen as a soft touch. After all, it was Christmas time.
How we apply the sayings of Christ is entirely up to us, and I don’t want to be a Scrooge. I’ll make my decisions magnificently, not pejoratively. There’s no doubt the time of the year helped me.
We weak human beings need all the help we can get, like urgings from Scripture and seasons. Here’s to my welfare this new year.
