Advent Day 9- December 9, 2011 Monday

-Advent means "coming"

-Let's look back at Jesus' sermon on the Mount to know how we should live, empowered by his Holy Spirit, until Jesus comes again.

-What is God like? God is like Jesus. Well what is Jesus like? Jesus is like his sermon on the Mount.

Matthew 6:1-4
“Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. 2 When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. 3 But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. 4 Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.

-We celebrate the Advent, the coming of Jesus, by giving gifts. Why not give an anonymous gift this year to someone in need.

Merry Christmas
