A joyful journey: Advent day by day

Saturday: "Living simply"

(Reference: Sirach 48:1-4, 9-11; Matthew17:9a, 10-13)

During the countdown to Christmas, we are bombarded by glittering commercials urging us to spend freely. But now is the time to remember John the Baptist, dressed in camel skin and dining on insects. He receives high praise from Jesus for calling the people to repentance and paving the Savior’s way.

How will you be moved by the Baptist’s simple, God-centered lifestyle as a “commercial” for the true spirit of Christmas?
