Dec. 20

Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Isaiah 55:1

Caution. We are the most susceptible to reaching for the wrong fix when we’re tired and stressed. Jesus is near, count Him dear and choose well today.

Temporary hits can’t satisfy eternal hunger … Whatever we reach for to make ourselves feel better today will become a fix we’ll need more of tomorrow. No amount of acquisitions, affirmations, or acclamations from creation can substitute for the Creator. We were created for God, and living for ourselves will always leave us empty.

Jesus is the One we’re longing for, and life is found in taking our cavernous souls to Him for filling. Go tell it on the mountain, Jesus Christ is born!
