The Greatest Gift

The greatest gift you can give yourself this Christmas is to believe you are lovable and good simply because you are created in God’s image. The Good Wolf inside our minds advocates for us to believe that. The Evil Wolf in us wants us to not believe it because they are a liar. They accuse us of all the things that are wrong with us and want us to think the worst about ourselves. Rejecting the Evil Wolf’s message and embracing the Good Wolf’s assurance leads inevitably to our neighbor. If we are lovable and acceptable then our neighbor is also lovable and acceptable because we are both loved by the Person who created us in a unique way.

This daily battle in our minds is won by the wolf we feed. Feed your Good Wolf. Here’s an example of how we can do that. Watch this conversation from The Chosen, Season 3, Episode 2 between Jesus and Little James. Merry Christmas.
