21. The wise men gave Gold, to show that Jesus was a king
When recalling someone and the description ‘heart of gold’ is used, you are meant to imagine kindness in a most precious way. Strangely it suggests kindness so un-bling -like as you can imagine. It is more about the purity of gold which can be found even in its rawest state, nugget like in the dross of clay or silt. This is gold that is worthy of offering.
What offering of gold do you offer today?

Jesus is coming,what are we to do in preparation?
It looks like rain so we put on a coat, the sun is hot so get out the sunscreen.
Jesus is coming should make a difference. How we see the world and then our response, each moment different because Jesus is near.
Advent, a distillation of Christian living.
