Preparation. It seems like I’m always preparing for something. I’ve got to prepare for work, I need to prepare dinner, I have to prepare the house for company.
December is almost here. It’s time to prepare for the holidays. Time to get out the ladder and hang the Christmas lights on the outside of the house. Time to put up the Christmas tree and get the Christmas cards ready to send. Shop for gifts and the Christmas ham. Bake some cookies and prepare the menu for Christmas Day.
In the midst of all our preparations, we need to remember to prepare our hearts to receive Jesus, our King.
“Prepare the royal highway, the King of kings is near!”
