Since this is a hectic time of the year I will make this blog post really short.
It is a holiday tradition to thank God for the blessings we have received in life. But what is the greatest blessing of all? Health? Family? Employment? A 20-pound turkey on the table?
The most important thing to pray for during this time of reflection and giving thanks is goodness. Goodness is to enjoy the harvest of a loving heart.
God’s Holy Word is not naïve to the realities, challenges and conflicts that the terrestrial world brings our way. That is why Scripture states “be wise as a serpent but innocent as a dove.” In other words, we should be fully aware of the ways of the world and not be taken advantage of. Yet we must also be on guard not to harbor any ill will towards others.
Even during trying times, what can we possibly possess that would trump goodness?
Happy Holidays, everyone!
