‘Good King Wenceslaus’

This 19th century Christmas carol has much to teach us. Note King Wenceslaus’ actions. He is moved to help a poor man, so he does it immediately. He shares out of his own possession. His action is deeply personal, moved by the Holy Spirit. And he breaks the trail for his servant, the stronger helping the weaker, rather than the other way around, the fallen world’s way. No wonder they made him a saint!
