Bible reading for Advent

“Produce fruit in keeping with repentance…
“What should we do then?” the crowd asked.
John answered, “Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same.”

Luke 3 v7-18

Prayer 3

Action for Advent

  1. What kind of good fruit could you try to produce in a world darkened by so much modern slavery?
  2. What resources do you, your church or community have which you could share with victims? How can you offer practical help, time, or show concern for victims in your neighbourhood?
  3. How can we learn to cut away false priorities and distractions?

Advent fact

Modern slavery is big business. An International Labour Organisation study estimated that forced labour generates annual profits of more than $150 billion, which is as much as the combined profits of the four most profitable companies in the world.
