God is good in all situations. We have heard the Christmas story several times over the last three weeks, and we know that in all things, God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to this purpose. Despite this, all things are not good. We are living through this awful Pandemic, but with faith and trust the Christmas story comes alive. Jesus is, in fact, God’s Christmas gift to us. He is the gift of God’s love and presence with us. As the Wise Men worshipped Him, and gave Him gifts, for the work in the world, so do we, the followers of Jesus. In Jesus we find all the gifts of life that we need.
