Son of Christian evangelist Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, shared his Christmas message on “Fox & Friends” Friday, and it definitely wasn’t just “happy holidays.”

“First of all, that God loves us. He hasn’t forgotten us. He hasn’t turned his back on us,” Graham said. “He cares and he sent his son from heaven to this Earth to take our sins. And Jesus Christ is alive, and he’ll come into each and every heart this Christmas that is willing to invite him. I have a lot of hope.”

Graham told people to perform an act of kindness for a stranger and make an effort to touch the lives of those they’ve never met. (RELATED: A Millennial’s Perspective On Billy Graham)


“I would encourage people that are watching — you know, we buy gifts and things for the people that we love, people that we know. But this Christmas, do something for somebody you don’t know,” he said. (RELATED: What Would You Get Trump For Christmas)

“Buy a sandwich, a cup of coffee. Or just stop and talk to somebody. So many people — just talking helps them. It’s therapy just to be able to tell another person what’s breaking their heart. And I would encourage people just this Christmas, take time with somebody you don’t know. If it’s just a minute — provide that sandwich, a cup of coffee, whatever — and listen to their story.”

Graham said it will help those in need and give people a sense of peace and goodwill this holiday season.

“When you leave them, say God bless you, and a Merry Christmas to you. Not only will it make you feel good, but the person that you’ve talked to, the person that you have helped — you’ll do incredible things for them,” he concluded.
