Third Sunday of Advent: Scripture Readings
Food For Thought
*excerpt from Take Time For Him: Remain In His Love
To prepare for Christ to renew mankind, and ourselves in particular, John the Baptist provides some practical advice. God is Justice and Mercy, therefore he instructs his followers to image God by practicing justice and mercy in their everyday life, thereby repenting of their own sin (injustice toward God and others) and restoring peace through mercy (forgiveness and reconciliation). Although this cannot be achieved fully without grace, the efforts and desire prepare for receptivity to that grace when it arrives in Jesus.
For some practical examples of how you can practice these in your everyday life, read the full reflection in Take Time For Him: Remain in His Love ebook or paperback
+ Reflect on the mercy God and others have shown you. Offer God and those persons your gratitude.
+ Pray about the works of mercy and write a list of ways that you could incorporate them into your life.
