On the Fifth Day of Christmas, My TRUE LOVE Gave to Me...

Today is December 29th- Happy "Fifth Day of Christmas"!

Today we think about the "5 Golden Rings" which symbolize the Five Books of the Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy)- also known as "The Pentateuch."

These five books, also referred to as "The Law," recount the story of humankind's brokenness and God’s glorious response of grace to us.

Today we contemplate God’s grace and mercy, that He should allow us to participate in the unfolding of His story.


Lord, God...

Thank You for being our True Love

Thank You for relentlessly pursuing humankind through history with your gracious and unending love,

Thank You for taking on flesh like us to offer us the ultimate form of love...

the kind that lays down its own life,

Thank You for letting us be part of your Glorious and Gracious story,

Help us to become better and better at relentlessly pursuing relationship with others that we might participate with You fully in restoring, redeeming and reconciling the entire world back to Yourself.
