Advent Self-Assessment, part 2b.

December 16, 2019

From a couple of days ago here —

This season of the Gospel called Advent is about two things: preparation and waiting.

Have we gotten so good at the former that we’ve forgotten the latter?

Psalm 37:7 points us in the direction of recovery when it says, Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for God.

Shhhhh.

— But…slowing down enough to get quiet…is only the beginning.

There are two more parts to Psalm 37:7′s prescription:

a) Be still

b) before the Lord

and wait

c) patiently for God.

And here I thought I’d done a lot by finally Shhhhhhh-ing myself! You, too?!

Nope.

Only the beginning.

Gotta get the focus off ourselves and onto the One for whom we wait patiently.
