Are you a people watcher?  I am.  And the holiday season is prime people watching time!  Malls are packed and everyone is out and about on their various missions. Sometimes what I observe is inspiring, like the gentleness of a grandchild with someone I imagine is an elderly family member.  Sometimes what I see is funny and other times it is pathetic, but it is always entertaining to let my imagination weave a life story out of the brief glimpse in to a stranger’s life.

This Christmas season I am also people watching from my comfy chair by the fire.  Through the pages of the Bible, God allows us a glimpse in to various people’s life story.  I am particularly interested right now in the characters found in the Nativity.  Scripture may not give the full background and all the juicy details that we might wish for, but what we get is a chance to connect with another person’s true life story, the opportunity to understand them a little better, and maybe even be inspired to improve our own life story by following their example.

We have posted ten Scriptural meditations here on our Daily Devotional page, in which we can read the words of the story of the Nativity just as they are recorded in the Bible.  And in the week before Christmas, our Daily Devotional will zoom in for a closer look at the faith of such people as Joseph, and the Magi, and the Shepherds.  I am very excited about this series, and it is going to be a really great few weeks ahead of us.  I hope you will take a few minutes each day to join us as we turn our eyes towards the true meaning of this season.

Merry Christmas!
