We like to talk about love alot in our culture. We make movies about it, sing songs about it, and write poems about it. We say things like: “I love bacon.” And also things like: “I love my kids.” Love has become sort of a junk-drawer word that can mean almost anything. And yet, the greatest picture of love is found in the source of love itself. The advent season reminds us that God is love. He loves you. And that type of love requires a response. That kind of love invites us to be fully alive rather than merely existing. And that’s a Christmas truth worth celebrating!
