Wow what a closing chapter! There is so much good instruction in this one. The reminder to “entertain strangers” comes to mind as we prepare to welcome another refugee family tomorrow.

But here are the two that catch my attention today

“15 Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name. 16 And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.


20 Now may the God of peace— who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, and ratified an eternal covenant with his blood— 21 may he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen.”

May God bless us all, equip us and produce good in us for his pleasure and glory. Merry Christmas
