Packer on The Christmas Spirit

"The Christmas spirit is the spirit of those who, like their Master, live their whole lives on the principle of making themselves poor--spending and being spent-- to enrich their fellow men, giving time, trouble, care, and concern, to do good to others--and not just their own friends--in whatever way there seems need. There are not as many who show this spirit as there should be."

-JI Packer, Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus, p. 72.
