This Christmas is about the greatest love ever. This Christmas, like every Christmas before and every one to come, is about the love of God that comes to us incarnate in Jesus Christ. As an imperfect receiver of such love, I am tasked with a response, but often I am overwhelmed with my own deficiencies or how much is needed and not sure I have enough to give. Yet, I can stand assured that God just asks me to try to respond, to give what I can and love to the best of my abilities. I am not called to be Jesus. I am called to reflect Jesus and that can come in big dramatic ways or small almost invisible ways.
“Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.” -Mother Theresa
May this Christmas you find the capacity to love a little more and share it with your friends, neighbors and enemies.
