At the end of A Christmas Carol Scrooge chooses to make a change in his life that will affect everything. In the Gospel, Mary chooses to embrace the message of the angel Gabriel.
Our choices carry powerful consequences for ourselves and those around us. Sometimes they are major events in life, but often they occur throughout a day as we freely decide to either step up (seeking what is good) or step down (giving in to temptation and sin).
This Christmas, may the choices we make be guided by the love and grace of Jesus Christ!
