Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. (Philippians 4:4
Dave Garroway was, for many years, the host of the TODAY show on NBC. Dave
attained wealth, fame and respect. Someone once asked him about his understanding
of Christmas. Here's how he replied: "I've noticed that when people are asked what
they want for Christmas, 9 times out of 10, they answer with something material.
That used to be amusing to me, but it's not amusing to me any longer. I happen to be
one of those people who can afford anything he wants, but I find what I really want,
I can't buy at all. I want peace of mind, peace of soul; the kind of peace you have
when you don't really want anything."
Our scripture reading today says, "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say,
Rejoice." One of the ways we can find peace in our hearts is by rejoicing in God
and not in the things of this world.
Dear God, I rejoice in you today. Thank you for my savior. In Jesus' name, Amen.
