“While other people wandered the mall wondering, our kids were following a calling.”
My friend Jon Swanson wrote this about the treasure hunt they led their kids on in a mall. But today, I’d encourage you to take a second look at the wandering person you care most about. Could it be that they are following a calling that you simply don’t understand?
Wandering and following may look the same from the outside
They might not understand the calling either. They may just be trying hard to figure out the next clue. And they may be feeling incredibly lonely and exposed doing it.
Might that help turn your with and nagging to kindness and trusting silence this Advent?
