Psalm 2:13 Happy are they all who take refuge in him.
Today’s readings also call us to intentionality in close relationships. We must face fear with courage that comes from faith, avoid distractions that would take us off track, and cling to the source of our life rather than isolate ourselves. This sounds daunting. Apart from God, we could not do it. But the good news of Christmas is that God is with us!
MOVING FORWARD: What has been made real or new in your life that reminds you of God’s presence with us? How will you celebrate this last day of Christmas?
