Hebrews 13:5. Your conduct must be free from the love of money and you must be content with what you have, for he has said, “ I will never leave you and I will never abandon you.” 

It’s the day after the big celebration.  The mess is cleared up,  Perhaps the family is gone.  There may be some disappointment because some didn’t get the material gift they wanted.  Our question is did we celebrate the love of Christmas or was it the love of the material?  God tells us to be content with what we have because what we most need, what is most precious, His love, will never leave us.  We were created to be in fellowship with God; to love and to be loved.  We just celebrated the first arrival in human form of God’s Word, His Son, Jesus, to this earth in a way we could see and relate with.  Now we look forward to His coming back to this earth to take us Home with Him.  The word “wait” has two meanings.  One meaning is to stay, remain or keep until something happens. The other meaning means to serve as a waiter or waitress serves.  This is the wait we must do as we await His return.  We are to serve Him through passing on His love to others and showing them the way into fellowship with God through Christ Jesus.  We have less than a week until a new year.  This is a good time to reflect on how we spent the last year and what changes we must make to be in obedience and fellowship with God for the next year.  Let us open our hearts, minds and ears to Him.
