Advent Day 19 – Good News for December 16

Luke 7:24-30

When the messengers of John the Baptist had left, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John. “What did you go out to the desert to see B a reed swayed by the wind? Then what did you go out to see? Someone dressed in fine garments? Those who dress luxuriously and live sumptuously are found in royal palaces. Then what did you go out to see?  A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet. This is the one about whom Scripture says:

Behold, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, he will prepare your way before you.

I tell you, among those born of women, no one is greater than John; yet the least in the Kingdom of God is greater than he.” (All the people who listened, including the tax collectors, who were baptized with the baptism of John, acknowledged the righteousness of God; but the Pharisees and scholars of the law, who were not baptized by him, rejected the plan of God for themselves.)

The Daily Path: I tell you, among those born of women, no one is greater than John; yet the least in the Kingdom of God is greater than he.

Just when you think you’ve done it all… your really haven’t.

“I am the best!!!” Mmm, not really.

“They ALL love me!” Guess again.

In this season of giving, give your ego away.
