This week the third candle of Advent represents joy. This week we remember that God sent Jesus so that we would always that God cares for us. We feel joy when we remember the love that God has for us. During Advent, we pray that we may remember again God's gift of Jesus to the world and know the joy that gift brings to all people.
Dear God, thank you for your son, Jesus. Thank you for the joy remembering Jesus' birth brings to us today. Help us to live in such a way that our words and our actions help others to know the joy you give.
Luke 1: 47-55
What does joy mean to you?
