Topic: ADVENT Passage: Psalm 36:5–36:10
The bounds of love are often tested, but the male emperor penguin may win the award for enduring, sustaining love. The male penguin is responsible for the unborn chick through the winter while the mother searches for and gathers food. By the time their vigil on top of the egg is over, the penguin fathers will have gone without food of any kind for 125 days, and they will have endured one the most violent and deadly winters on earth (80 degrees below zero at times), all for the chick. How much greater is our heavenly Father’s love for us! Merry Christmas!
