Reflection: The words “When the goodness and loving kindness of our Savior appeared” open this passage for three days before Christmas. I’m sure you are very busy right now, doing last minute preparations for gatherings with family and friends in the next few days. But remember, we are still in the Advent season, getting ready for Christ’s birth. Don’t let the final preparations for your celebrations this year hinder you from taking some time to reflect and prepare for Jesus. Today, may you think about that goodness and loving kindness that we are shown from Jesus. It is that goodness and kindness that we should celebrate this season and every day of our life. –Chad Hershberger
