Do you hear the incessant call as I do?
Every time I open up my emails the merchants are beckoning me with their latest flash sale. Scrolling through the TV, I’m inundated with pleas to hurry before I miss out on the biggest sale of the year. Before I know it I’m drawn into chasing down the lowest prices hopping down through Internet trails. It’s so easy to get lost in it all.
But beyond all the discounts and deals, I hear another charge to COME. Four little letters yet in it the holds an invitation to meet with the Savior of the world. He doesn’t use fancy marketing ploys, flashing lights or any of the world’s typical bells and whistles.
The holiday season can be a wonderful time of year but it can also be one filled with hustle and stress. Many things will ring out for our time, attention, and dollars but the choice is ours on what we answer. Are you drawing near to those things that bring you joy, peace, and love during this season?
Have you resorted to doing the things you think you ought to the neglect of one who calls you to come away with Him?
