Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with ISRAEL; fight against those who fight against ISRAEL!
Take hold of shield and buckler and rise for ISRAEL'S help! Draw the spear and javelin against ISRAEL'S pursuers!
As the Christmas season approaches, it’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of festivities, decorations, and traditions. It’s the time of year when nativity scenes adorn our homes, and the Christmas story echoes in our ears once more. But, let’s be honest, sometimes our familiarity with these things can dim the awe of that very first Christmas.
As we grow older, the nativity scenes around town and the Christmas story we hear each year may lose some of their enchantment. They become an annual ritual, and the words of the story become more like a well-rehearsed script than an immersive experience. It’s not uncommon to find ourselves hearing or reciting those familiar passages without truly pausing to absorb their profound significance.
This year, I invite you to approach the Christmas season with fresh eyes and an open heart. Imagine that you are seeing the nativity scene for the first time, that you’re peering into the lives of the characters with a renewed perspective. Let’s recapture the wonder that may have faded over the years.
Pathway to Victory has created a beautifully designed book featuring intricate illustrations of the nativity figures, bringing the story to life. Called simply The Nativity Devotional, in its pages, you’ll discover devotions that delve into the lives of the central characters: Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, the wise men, the angels, and, of course, Baby Jesus.
What can we learn from these individuals, each uniquely chosen by God to play a vital role in that momentous occasion? The Nativity Devotional will be your guide to rediscovering the wonder of Christmas.
As our gift to you in return for your generous donation to Pathway to Victory, this devotional is perfect for sharing as a family. You can explore it together while decorating your home for the holidays or in the days leading up to Christmas. And if you have young children or grandchildren, you can use the simple, child-friendly version included at the end of each devotional to share the story with your loved ones.
A left-wing writer and racial-justice activist who has claimed that American society was "instituted by racist ideas and maintained by racist policies" published a black history book for kids earlier this year that appears to be filled with content plagiarized from other sources, according to a review of the book by National Review . Confronted with the apparent plagiarism, the book’s publisher said it would be pulled from circulation pending an investigation. Rann Miller, a New Jersey-based activist and educator, published Resistance Stories from Black History for Kids in March. According to the book, it is designed to be a "place of entry" into the history of the African people so readers will be "empowered to fight" injustices in the world. Miller, a former teacher who has both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree from Rutgers University, also writes opinion pieces for the Philadelphia Inquirer , the Progressive Magazine, and education websites
