Good morning.


Christmas can be the loneliest time of year for many people, reminding them of loss, broken relationships and unfilled spaces in their lives. Sometimes, a ray of hope is all they need to hold on just that little while longer.


As Christ-followers, we are commissioned to reflect the light that Jesus brought into a dark and hurting world. Yet ironically, at Christmastime it’s especially easy to get caught up in the busyness and commercialism of the season, focusing on planning parties and buying presents. We may find our thoughts and actions focused on things not all that different from unbelievers.


We should follow Paul's instruction to Timothy to be prepared in season and out of season to share the gospel. Is it possible that if we go along with the crowd and remain quiet when we should speak of the greatest hope available, we may be keeping someone from meeting Christ—the source of all light.


Isaiah, hundreds of years ago, said: "The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.

(Isaiah 9:2)


Let’s do all that we can to share the Light of the world this Christmastime. Think of specific family members, co-workers, and neighbours who need a little light in their lives.


Have a super weekend.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

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
