"Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. " — Psalms 95:7-8 We approach the Christmas holiday. It is a season when joy seems to touch almost every human heart. It is difficult to resist. There are so many traditional things associated with Christmas that it becomes for most of us a memorable occasion. A familiar carol reminds of a Christmas long ago. A card brings a message from an old friend we had almost forgotten. A dear relative makes a surprise visit. Do not, amid all the trap- S ings of the season, fail to nd time to open up your heart to the message of the Christmas. Think not about this Christmas or that Christmas. Think — and remember — why we have a Christmas observance at all.
