Good morning! I hope your Advent is becoming meaningful as you contemplate the coming of the Christ Child.
I was thinking about a saying I’ve used a lot most of my professional life, “it’s all relative.” You may have used it too. Well, here’s a little phrase for us to contemplate today – “Look Up!” It’s kind of like the saying “it’s a matter of perspective.” When hearing the Gospel Proclamation, I realized that on that starry night long ago, when the Angels appeared to the shepherds in their fields, those sheepherders were forced to “Look Up!” not down. I know in my own my life it sometimes seems like I’m always looking down and that’s the wrong direction. If our lives need changing, if we’re in need of forgiveness, if we’re hoping for healing, we would be much better off to “Look Up!” As I’ve said many times, we tend to look up as a last resort. I wonder what we’ve missed that God has planned for us while looking down…
So today, let’s examine the Christmas Story with Fresh Eyes, Seeing Christmas in a New Light; maybe we can change our point of view and “Look Up!” Remember – When Christ was on the Cross for us, EVERYONE had to look up at him! And when His Father called him to sit at his right hand and He ascended, again, everyone had to “Look Up.” We’re glad you’re with us today! God bless you!
In the name of the coming Messiah,
