Friday of the Third Week of Advent

December 16, 2016

JMJ

Blessed Ember Friday!

Jesse Tree
King David, 2 Samuel 5:1-5, I Samuel 16:1-13
Suggested symbol: crown

He was the least
of Jesse’s sons
forgotten,
uninvited
to the feast,
but left behind
to tend the sheep.
OKing
God had in mind
a larger flock
for him,
the feast could not
begin
until he had arrived.

From him
would the
Good Shepherd
rise,
likewise despised,
with hidden
royalty.

You look upon
the heart,
O Lord;
O, give me eyes
to see
below the surface
of the lives of those
that You have brought
to me.
