    I wanted to alert your to a free set of daily devotionals covering the month of December. The devotionals focus on Christ, from the pre-existent Christ through Age 12. The devotionals were written by various members of Anchor Missionary Baptist Mission (Anchorage, Alaska, USA) and Harvest Missionary Baptist Church (Avon, Indiana, USA).

    Focusing on Christ should always be a priority, but there's increased opportunity this time of the year to 'love the world' rather than remember our first love. Take time, refocus. Thanks.
