Christmas i the day we keep in eomtnemora I on of
may find in Him both temporal well-being and eternal .-
To me it mean, also', a time for the refurbithiiifi of ideals. Ideah are vhat n-e live by.
There is danger that an a man meets the disillusionment of life he may permit his ideals tr bc
eowe tqrnithed, or he may lose them altogether. Chri'tman affords opportunity to take fresh
hold upon the ideal.
The ideal is above priee. It means the difference Letvicn meeesn avd failure; the difference
between a noble life ami an ignoble career; and sometime it means the difference. Itetween life and
death. The. ideal is of snpremf 'importance became once acquired nothing but n moral revolution
in a man can change it'. The ideal dominate a man's life, determines his character, and fires his
relationships among hie fellows.
The Cnristmas season supplies a perfect illustration of the ideal. The vnse men, looking up
ward and pressing onward, vers led by the star out of the ilezcrt into Jerusalem, yhen they fol
lowed the star again until U brought them to Bethlehem. Then they followed it in. Bethlehem
vntil they came to the manger where in the-Chitd lay.
The ideal is like the star of Bethlehem. It has value for ns in proportion as it is high enough
above vs to keep us looking, upward ail the time and for evovgh before its to kicp ns struggling
oi'ward to the end of life. It a very poor ideal that ive con ever overtake, and it is a great mis
fortune for one ever completely to realize his ideal. For, when he does, his progress stops. I like
ta think of life as a continuous unfolding, a daily progress tmcards higher levels. The Christmas
season emphasizes the saying of the wise rnan in the Bofik of Proverbs, "The path of the jiust is
as the. shining light that shine th more and more untu tne perfect day.'"
Not only is there this general exhortation at Christmas time to cultivate the ideal, but every
individual lias opportunity to make the particular applications which his life needs. For me
there are three principles, or laws of living, flowing aown from this general Cnristmas illumina
tion of the ideal. y , J
One is the law of service, as the measure of greatness. The One born on Christmas came
"not to be ministered unto but to minister" He said, "Whoso would be greatest among yon, let
him be servant of all." It was true in times past, is true now, and ever will be true, that he is
greatest tvho does the most good. The human measure of a life is its income; the Divine' measure
of a life is its outgo. Not what we accumulate and keep, like a stagnant pool, but what we add to
the sutn-total-of human happiness, like a flowing spring, makes great "It is more blessed to
give than to receive." j
Another is the law of I sacrifice, the means by wnich the spirit of service expresses itself.
The Babe in the manger grew, to manhood, and "gave his life a ransom for many." He hesitated
not to give "the last full measure of devotion." Not our convenience but the world's need is the
standard of service. ' Hen will serve while it is pleasant to do so, but Christmas says that we must
go beyond that. "U'Aat do ye more than others?" is the challenge. He who was born 1925 years
ago in Bethlehem, and who may be bom again in onr hearts at th'S itme, said, "He that seekelh
his life shall lose it, and he that loseth his life shall find it."-- Wendell Phillips has a fine passage
in confirmation of this. He says that the multitudes by taking thought of themselves sink into
nameless graves, while the few "forget themselves into immortality" ;
The third application is the law of love, which is the taio of .life. The Babe of Bethlehem
brought a new conception of lave into the world. The love known to the world before his birth
was limited to tne relationships beticeen husband and teife,' parent and ehildrent and friend and
friend. In Christ, however, the world experienced a love as , boundless as the sea fa love so
limitless t hut no one can travel beyond its reach. This new love Is giving mankind a new heart.
It is not blind, but penetrates, the dark places with light. It rists the sick-chamAcr with cheer;
it penetrate the prison cell vrith hope; it points out the weak places in the armor of boasting
. strength. This kind of tare begets, love. Heart answereth unto heart. "We love him because ne
first loved ti$" hasbeen written of everyone whom the world has ever loved. Love is a growing
force in the world because it i the only weapon against which there is no shield. In the closing
chapters of his work on the 'French Revolution Corlyle calls attention to an important truth. He
saps that thought it stronger than artillery parks, cud at the last mould the world ke soft clay.
Tken he adds that back of thought is love. Carlyle is right. 'Thought is mightier than force,
but only because it'is nurished and supported by hve. Thought- looks up' to lore a the flower
opens to the mn.. -i i . ... j , . :,- . ' "... ! - : '.
These, Hen, are thoughts for Christmas? Let every man'hUve a worthy ideal of life; and
let him express, that ideal in forms of service, inspired by love, and measured by sacrifice.
