The second of two December 1909 sermons ("Good Will Among Men" is the first) on the "real meaning of Christmas. Davis says to honor Jesus -- to really honor him -- is to recognize that he really believed in creating heaven on earth. We have to do the work now to strive for that ideal and not worship some past hero -- such as Jesus -- and hope that said past hero will save us today. Such focus on the past distracts from the hard work needed today to create the better future for tomorrow.
