Here is another Advent gift for you, one that’s in keeping with the theme of this week’s prayer bead devotion, which encourages us to show mercy to our neighbors in preparation for the gift of Mercy we will receive at Christmas. It’s another great video from You Tube, whose primary message is to spend less on things for Christmas and instead give more of yourself – your time, talents, attention, and other resources – to others this season.
And yes, I recognize that, as a business owner, that message conflicts with my efforts to sell prayer beads and other products this season, but that’s okay. This message is more important, and if I truly believe that I need to live it as well.
Happy Advent! Kristen
