- The third prayer for Advent, 2014
“Advent” is the beginning of the Church Year during which the church looks back to the first coming of Jesus Christ and looks forward to the second coming! It lasts for 4 Sundays ending on Christmas Eve.
It is a spiritual journey that can be expressed through
• The Advent Wreath
• Candle Lighting; and
• Advent Devotions
Where do you think the money for the best robe, ring and sandal came from? Somebody had to work hard for the money. Where do you think the fattened calf came from? Somebody had to break his back working on the farm. When somebody took his share of inheritance and split; somebody had to remain behind to work for the father.
So the older son did just that, he worked hard and remained with his father. That was commendable. In fact, that was needful.
