Third Tuesday in Advent

Third Tuesday in Advent

Wonder of a Manger

(Light 2 Purple and 1 Pink Candles)

So they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the child lying in the manger.

Luke 2:16

They went with haste. We know all about making haste don’t we? We do everything super fast. We go from place to place, call to call, class to class, meeting to meeting, seeking to be efficient and use all of our time to the best of our ability. But what do we gain for our efforts. The shepherds gained eternity that night. They met, worshiped and offered what they had, Faith, to the newborn king.

If you had met Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus that night, what would you have given as a gift? Many things were given to Jesus: worship, gold, frankincense, myrrh, a kiss from Mary his mother. Let us give our hearts.

God, as we make haste to celebrate the birth of Jesus, let the gift of our hearts show our love. AMEN
