Monday, December 14—A 2020 Winter Devotional

This is the one of whom the prophet Isaiah spoke when he said, “The voice of one crying out in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.’” Matthew 3:3

“During Advent we look around. We try to see the things we usually miss. We read stories about people in other places and imagine what their lives are like. Some of the stories are sad. Why do some people have so much and others not enough? The world is not as it should be. The stories push us to ask hard questions.” Laura Alary in Look! A Child’s Guide to Advent and Christmas

Holy One, as we look around help us to see what needs to change. Show us how to turn our hearts to you. Amen.
