Rescued from the Life I Always Wanted
The season of Advent is upon us, and as I settle into this season of waiting and pondering, I quickly find myself living in the tension of believing Jesus’ words and walking through the aisles of Target.
I find myself wanting another scarf more than I want to give to someone else. Is it really better to give than to receive?
Every time I push my red cart to my empty trunk, feeling the thrill of new things, I struggle to accept Jesus’ words. Does not our quality of life consist in our abundance of possessions?
