Good morning.

God has never been interested in the world’s definition of greatness. Paul told the Corinthians, “God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.”

Take Bethlehem for example. In Micah 5:2 we read: “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”

The small size of Bethlehem magnifies the glory God would receive for establishing the life of His Son there. Where Jesus’ journey began did not determine what He could accomplish for the Kingdom.

Isn’t it the same with us? What God can do in someone’s life is not limited by the world's definition of their status. The refrain of Josh Groban's song sums it up:

"You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders

You raise me up to more than I can be"

As we move towards Christmas, see yourself through God's eyes and remember that the Advent of Christ is filled with hope.

Have a good weekend.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
