Read: Luke 2:8-20
Our dashing around at Christmas time is in sharp contrast to the stillness of that first Christmas eve and the speechlessness of the shepherds. Immersed in noise and traffic we hustle another Christmas season. We seem oblivious to the fact that God used the quietest sanctuary he could find to host the heavenly choir. What possesses us to do what we do in the days leading up to Christmas? Whatever it is may be more demonic and perverse than we realize.
Prayer: Quiet us down, Lord, center us in Christ. Open us up to the wonder of Your Salvation. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from all evil. We pray for Your favor and seek Your glory. Amen.
