Thankfully, I had folks around me like Duncan who helped me to see the bigger picture and reminded me that being a peace officer is a divine vocation; that we are the sheepdogs sent to protect and serve the most vulnerable in our communities.
So, be encouraged in the hustle-and-bustle of this holiday season with the Good News of what it is really all about: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:11) This Christ says to you, “Are you a peacemaker? Then you are in good shape as you will be called the sons of God.” (cf. Matthew 5:9)
Blessings and Peace to you on your Christmas season ... stay safe and watch your six!
