DAVID POLING "Each must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that you will always have enough of everything."—St. Paul. * * * The demands and compulsions of the yuletide season create a strain that is anti- Christian. The season of giving, for many young people, becomes a time of getting and grabbing. Since early childhood the kids have heard the phrase: What do you want for Christmas? So Christmas becomes a strategy of building lists, negotiating for big treasures from the grandparents and matching desires with the gang down the street. It is not a good scene and the adults are in a worse bind. The compulsions of Christmas (self-inflicted) have been locked into commercial and professional requirements for many people: They send greetings to remind you of their service and sales of the past year —or favors sought in 1973. Gifts and presents in some corporate situations reach the bribery level rather quickly. The season, for some, becomes one grand manipulation with joy and best wishes rather distant from the act of giving. There are few blessings in reluctant or compulsive giving. Cheerful giving is really an art form. The person or family that has learned this attitude finds that the Christmas spirit does extend around the year. It means a steady transition from the childish mood of what-do-I-want-for-C h r i s t m a s to a broader, more compassionate theme: What can I give to others. Giving has to be taught and it should be learned within the home. It springs from a source of thankfulness and gratitude toward God, who, according to St. Paul, sees that you always have enough. Aside from overcoming our selfishness and self-protection, we are faced in the 20th century with what churchman Richard Knox Smith calls "compassion fatigue." The evening news on television churns with all the global alarms and catastrophes: a tidal wave in India, an earthquake in Ecuador, a famine in Africa. The sensitive viewer steels himself against the demands of the world lest he be broken by its tragedy and calamity. His response is limited by distance and resource, so his charitable mood is diminished and compassion fatigue sets in. The caring person and the giving family has to face realistically the needs of life. One solution may be to concentrate on certain areas of philanthropy for a given period of time. One cannot support responsibly every appeal and request and need. The advice here is to narrow the direction of one's cash and energy, believing that others must take up the slack during our absence or participation. Since giving includes our intellectual involvement (translated in meetings, discussions, research, and advocacy) as well as dollar contributions, we may want to follow priorities here as well. None of us has the total schedule to follow the concerns of pollution, population explosion, urban decay, problems of youth and aging, abortion reform, war and peace and a thousand other questions with any kind of regular attention. Here again we must narrow our interests in order to widen our influence. Christmas should be a season of education as well as celebration and a great start can be made when we substitute giving for getting. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) Bible Thought For I through the law am dead to the law that I might live unto God. — Galatians 2:19. The life of faith is not oriented with respect to rules but with respect to a Person. Religion is not obedience to law, but rather love of God. CALVARY GOSPEL ASSEMBLY Raymond W.

They came from distant countries. They were not Christ's own countrymen. And yet they kneeled before the manger. They offered precious gifts—gold, frankincense and myrrh. The world had found its Center—a Life and a Love to bring men together. The visit of the Wisemen is the first step in the universal mission of the Church—to bring the whole of humanity into the Kingdom. But man has been a long time accepting the lesson of the Wisemen. We are still suspicious of strangers, of foreigners, of our new neighbors. Before our day, the peoples of the earth lived in many mansions. Now we are all under one roof—drawn together by modern communication and travel. With the transformation of today's world the decision over the Wisemen can no longer be postponed. All of us, human beings from every corner of the globe, must realize our need for one another, our need for love and understanding. Together we must kneel down before the manger.
