Scripture: Proverbs 24:27
Get your outside work done; make preparations in the field; then you can build your house.
Thought for the Day: How you get things done and the order you get things done might be just as important as what you hope to get done. In fact, the choices we make around the how and the order determine the outcome. We are impatient and compulsive creatures. Now there is nothing wrong with some good restlessness that pushes us forward, but if it is an attitude of “I want it now,” it will too often produce something other than what we wanted to produce. As we approach one of the most magnificent, joyful and fun times of the year, let us be mindful that it is Advent, not Christmas. Advent is the weeks of preparation before Christmas. Let us make good use of this time, recognizing that how we move toward Christmas and the order in which we do things on our way to Christmas will have a significant impact on what Christmas is for us. I hope to see you in worship on Sunday as we begin our Advent Theme from Isaiah the Prophet, “Let us walk in the light of the Lord.”
Prayer: It’s Advent, Lord. It is Advent! Let me say it again, It is Advent. Let it be a time when I take seriously all that is required to make sure that when I arrive at Christmas Day that I actually arrive at the birth of Jesus. Amen.
