Advent and Black Friday

Once again Black Friday has exposed the ugly side of America. Every year on the Friday after Thanksgiving stores give huge discounts, lure shoppers in, and kick off the Christmas season by selling so much merchandise that the stores are able to "be in the black."

Thanksgiving has to do with being grateful for what you have; the shopping lust has to do with not being satisfied with what you have - like a child saying, "thank you" one moment, and then "give me more" the next.)

Put on Your Christ Lens

Some of you are reading this only because you've got something on your face. Without those glasses, this would just be a blur.

And in our text from Colossians 1, we see Jesus giving that to us. So we have reason to put on this Christ lens, because Jesus changes the way things look - the way we look to God and the way he looks to us.
