December 21: If you are ever around a fire pit with me I will ask you THE survey question. “Do you watch the bottom of the fire, or do you watch the top of the fire?” I have kept an informal record of the answers to this survey, and 98% of people watch the bottom of the fire. To be honest, I might be the only one that enjoys watching the top of the fire. There are a few that will not commit and say both.
I know it is the Christmas season, and we are focused in on Jesus, the Son of the Trinity. Although it makes me think of the Holy Spirit of the Trinity. The top of the fire shows action and movement, which is what we need to spread the news that the Savior of the world has been born. During this busy celebration season, still take time to look for a chance to spread the Good News of that baby being born. Maybe you can do it while sitting around a fire pit asking some crazy survey question.
