QotD – A Sunday with Family

Sunrise“Don’t you see that children are God’s best gift?”

- Psalm 127:3a, The Message translation

Quote of the Day.

A few weeks ago, I decided that my topic for the week leading up to Christmas was going to be family – how important they are in determining our direction in life and, ultimately, our happiness.  It seemed an appropriate fit for the holiday season.

I always like to pick out a Bible verse on Sunday mornings, giving something to reflect on while we relax and reset ourselves for the week ahead.  The ideas of family and Christmas led me to find the verse above and plan on its use for today.  The events of this past week in Newtown, Connecticut, however, add a whole new layer of meaning.

The shooting in Newtown serves as a poignant reminder to take stock of our priorities and examine what is truly important to us.  Certainly something good to reflect on for the day!
