Advent continues with John’s call to for people to repent, or change their hearts and minds by turning around in a new direction. Advertisers do their best to trick us to believe that human worth is derived from possessions. Ads churn our insides up with insatiable wants and desires. God instead desires that we turn our attention to life-enhancing, soul-strengthening times of quiet and service to others. Take some time to converse with your loved ones on how to expand those life-giving activities and times of rest.
