Words to remember this holy season

To the editor:

December is a holy time for Jews, Christians and Muslims. As we move forward in a month full of spending, giving and receiving, we also face days fraught with political fervor.

It can help all of us to remember these words:

"Whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted." Matthew 23:12.

And "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Matthew 6:21.
