Advent: What do you seek? Whom do you seek?

Good questions for Advent.

In this day and age we spend more time going to malls that church, more time on the computer ordering items than saying the daily office, more time on a search engine than the search of our inmost hearts.

The society around us would have us ask the first question: What do you seek? And the businesses invested in monetary profit will happily answer this question by hawking their own product. The expectation is that whatever we seek can be bought.
We have the option of investing in enterprises that invest in the needs of the less fortunate and their futures: their eye is not on the profit margin.

Advent means coming toward. Christ, salvation, redemption, inner healing and comfort comes toward us. Yet, in our jaded minds and hearts would we be looking for these things in this packaging: a defenseless, homeless, child conceived by other means.

What do you seek? Whom do you seek? We have a few weeks to decide, choose and prepare. I pray we all choose to prepare the way of the Lord. Prepare in self dedication and hope, prepare our minds, homes, hearts.

Prepare. He comes anew. Make a place of honor for him. Gift him with your own open, loving heart.
