Mark 1:1-8 · John the Baptist Prepares the Way
An Announcement from the Wilderness
Mark 1:1-8
by King Duncan

After some last-minute Christmas shopping, a woman was rushing her grandchildren into the car. It was then that four-year-old Jason said, “Grandma, Susie has something in her pocket.” He then proceeded to reach into Susie’s pocket and pulled out a new red barrette.

Though she was tired, this grandmother knew it was important for Susie to put the item back where she had found it. They did just that. Then they headed to the grocery store. Later at the grocery store checkout, the clerk asked, “Have you kids been good so Santa will come?”

“I’ve been very good,” replied Jason, “but my sister just robbed a store.” (1)

Well, I hope all our boys and girls are being good with Christmas coming. For that matter, I hope all our adults are being good. After all, Santa is watching.

It is interesting…
