We've had an exciting all be it gloomy, cloudy Saturday.  I can't say any of us behaved the way we should have.  I'm sure as God has looked down on us, He would see a lot of the work of the flesh.  However, I know some of us are clothed in the righteousness given to us through Christ.  Now when God looks down on our behavior, it's like we're standing under Jesus' umbrella and he only sees the righteousness of His Son and the fruits of the Holy Spirit become evident in our lives.

Family Scripture Reading: 

"Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him." Psalm 33:1

Family Discussion Suggestion: 

Discuss what it means to be righteous. How does a person sing joyfully? How can we praise our God? See also today's Advent Activity - Christmas Carol Guessing Game.

Advent Activity: 

Christmas Carols Guessing Game

Today's Scripture reading tells us to Sing Joyfully to our Lord.

During dinner tonight, light your candles (3) for the week of JOY and ask each family member to give 2-3 hints about their favorite Christmas Carol. Allow the other family members to guess. You can even hum the tune. Whoever guesses correctly gets to go next. Make sure everyone gets a turn!
