Beside the Still Waters (12.01.2020)
The Bible begins and ends with garden imagery. The psalmist tells us that God's intention is to lead us beside still waters—to restore our soul. God's intention is to give us a life that is tranquil and peaceful, but at the same time productive and with purpose. However, God will not force us into this life; we must allow God to lead us into it.

The Magi brought gifts to Jesus. This act of kindness sets an example for all followers of Christ.
