President Donald Trump attended the midnight service at Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-sea in Florida.
Rev. James Harlan focused on the power of words and God’s light. He quoted Nelson Mandela’s quote regarding not using words lightly. It’s unclear if Trump understood the message, but on the off chance the (gold-plated) penny never dropped, here are nine Biblical quotes from Jesus Christ you can tweet at Donald Trump this Christmas.
“Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied…But woe to you who are rich, for you have already received your comfort. Woe to you who are well fed now, for you will go hungry.” Luke 6:20
“He who oppresses the poor taunts his Maker, But he who is gracious to the needy honors Him.” Proverbs 14:31
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Matthew 25:34-36
“Jesus looked at him and loved him. ‘One thing you lack,’ he said. ‘Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.'” Mark 10:21
“A poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his disciples, He said, ‘This poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything.” Mark 12:41
“When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers, your relatives, or rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back & so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled… & you will be blessed” Luke 14:12
“Then the Lord said to him, ‘Now then, you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness.'” — Luke 11:39
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” Philippians 2:3.
“We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.” Romans 15:1
