A Man of His Word

amohw2 2A Man of His Word by Hesba Stretton.

Christmas Williams was well respected in his town, but he despised the new prayer meetings, psalm-singing and talk of a Savior. When Christmas' daughter, Easter, believed in Jesus as her Savior he threw her out of the house and promised never to talk with her again. She became married and had a son, but he kept his word and did not speak to them. The story continues and Christmas must be a "man of his word." When "keeping his word" becomes hypocritical, pride and reputation are seen for what they are in God's sight.
