Question for Reflection:
Do you take God’s promises as seriously as Simeon did? Can others take your promises seriously?
Prayer for the day:
O God, your promises are for all of us, and for each of us. Your promises are full of hope, a hope that shines for us now as we anticipate the birth of Jesus, a hope that shines for us always in the presence of your Spirit.
