Have you ever been tested? Jesus was! Testing has a way of helping us decide what is important; it helps us set priorities. Meeting the challenges of daily living and “passing the tests” can make us stronger. May we realize there is more to life than food; more to life than power; more to life than possessions. May we reflect on what is truly important during this Christmas season – our relationship with God, our relationship with others, and our becoming more Christlike disciples.
