We Work While We Wait

John the Baptist urges us to consider that hoping for the coming of Christ requires something of us. “Bear fruit,” he says. Hope is expecting, but hope is not merely waiting for what we expect. Hope is changing our habits and living differently. As we prepare for the Christ child, perhaps we need to listen to the words of John the Baptist, who gives direction to all on how to prepare the way for the Lord.

Primary Scripture – Matthew 3:1-12
