Journey to Advent--Day Twenty-one
We are almost there. The day will soon arrive. All around us we are continually asking, "are you ready for Christmas?"
This passage asks us to instead inquire, "How is our perspective on Christmas?"
Are we focusing on the snow (dreaming of white) or focusing on the creator of snow?
Are we adoring the angels or the one they announced and bowed to in adoration?
We are reminded Jesus is above creation. He is superior to the angels. He is the begotten Son.
We must not lose the perspective.
Father, amidst the decorations and the dreams of the holiday, help me keep the perspective. Because of your sacrifice, Amen.
