God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Rules - 3:17

17.  If you are in a position of authority, rule much more with kindness & meekness than with fear & terror; for this is better than the use of tyranny, which is always accompanied by sorrow & anxiety.  The righteousness of God cannot long endure tyranny - oppressors do not rule for long.


Remember that a harsh administration is a great injustice.  God requires meekness from those in authority just as much as justice.  For this reason, rule over your subjects with love & mercy so that they will love you more than they fear you.
