John the Baptist is redefining “kingdom”…
- The kingdom of God is saying, “Look out for your neighbor. If you have more than you need, share with those who are going without.”
- Sharing might not be as easy as we thought. Advent can expose our need for a kingdom that pushes us into the hope of generosity.
- The kingdom of God rewrites the rules and gives hope of a future where we can be united in love for God and neighbor.
Out of our generosity,
the world might see and know a generous God
who left the riches of heaven so that we might be free of sin.
