 Advent is a season associated with gift giving and ‘re-gifting’ comes to mind, the questionable practice of giving something to someone that you received as a gift yourself.  I think of God’s gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, God’s son.  While salvation is not a gift from one human to another, we can re-gift the good news of Jesus Christ.  Advent reminds me of my desire and duty to share the Good News each and every day.


Dear Lord, thank you for the gift of your son Jesus Christ.  Please give me the skill and strength to share this news with others.  I pray in his name.  Amen.
