Goodness Gift - Advent 24

Goodness Gift- Advent 24

Hearing songs this time of year 
about being good for "goodness sake."
To be rewarded by Santa.
That is a very different story 
than the little family nestled in Bethlehem.
There we have goodness for "goodness sake."
Because we are loved by a God
 who could do no other.
His perfect, divine nature allows Him
 to only act for the positive 
and unable to do otherwise.
He can ONLY be good. 

Every good and perfect gift is from above, 
coming down from the Father
 of the heavenly lights, 
who does not change like shifting shadows.
James 1:7

And in the stable we are reminded this 
of just what goodness looks
 like coming down 
from above -
Good and Perfect Gift.
