Love at Christmas


Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them
Humankind.
Genesis 5:2
Love came down at Christmas, 
Love all lovely, Love divine; 
Love was born at Christmas; 
star and angels gave the sign. 

Worship we the Godhead, 
Love incarnate, Love divine; 
worship we our Jesus, 
but wherewith for sacred sign? 

Love shall be our token; 
love be yours and love be mine; 
love to God and others, 
love for plea and gift and sign.
 Christina Rossetti (1885)
May mercy, peace, and love be yours in abundance.
 Jude 1:2
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Loving God, we thank you for your gift of love—shown to us perfectly in Jesus Christ our Lord. Help us prepare our hearts for the Lord’s coming by loving others as Christ loves us.
✙ 
After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
