As we celebrate the fourth Sunday of Advent our Advent journey comes to a close. The patient (or impatient) preparation and waiting now lies behind us and all that we did (or did not do) is history. We move forward together into the Christmas Season overflowing with God’s love – an unconditional love that was freely given to all of us undeserving human beings. This gift was given to us so that, like all good gifts, we would share it with others.
When we do any of these things, we are bringing the Father’s love, personally, to people and living out the commandment He left for us – Love one another! The more we practice sharing that love, the more natural it will be for us to give. We will no longer have to force ourselves to reach out to our brothers and sisters rather it will come naturally. When we understand the importance of God’s love in our lives and see it as the ultimate gift we can receive, then its value can only multiply when we share that love with others.
