What do you want?

That's a phrase we often hear this time of year. Perhaps you've asked over the past few days. Perhaps someone has asked you.

What do you want?

Most people are referring to things that money can buy. Something that can be wrapped an put under a tree. Something that can b found in a store or ordered online.

But what if we take that question a little further. What if we dig a little deeper. What is it that you really want?

If we're honest, the things we strive after day after day and especially during the Christmas season are not things that can be purchased, but we try to satisfy the void with those things.

If we're honest, the things we want are less tangible, more elusive, harder to define, but oh so much more rewarding, fulfilling and enduring when we receive them.

If you've ever experienced hope, love, joy or peace then you know what I mean.

So, what's on your Wish List?

That's what we'll be talking about over the next several weeks in worship as we approach Christmas.

Deciding what I really want,
Pastor Mike
