Sunday Verses

devotional for advent on slowing down
Happy Sunday! It is advent, a time to reflect and prepare for the joyful celebration of the birth of Jesus. BUT, for most of us it is all about being too busy and too stressed and having too little time.. This verse, one of my favorites, makes me want to take a deep sigh. It reminds me that God is not looking for busy religious activity from us. He does not want big, complicated performances and gestures. He simply wants us to walk with him, to look around us for those that are right in front of us who are in need, and to then act mercifully with those people. In this season of advent let's practice slowing down and enjoying the season. Let's breathe and look for those opportunities where God wants us to act justly and walk humbly with him.
