A second candle is lighted, if you use the Advent wreath in your house. Mine’s still atop the fridge, but I hope to bring it down this week and dust it off. It might help me slow down a bit during this time of increased hectivity. That word could be considered a sniglet, from Rich Hall’s HBO program of the 80’s called Not Necessarily the News. I’m not a big fan of the gospel of Matthew, but that’s what we have for this year, so I’ll use it to reflect on specific little things.
For instance, in today’s reading, the least in heaven is considered greater than John the Baptist. As a programmer, this could be written this way:
YourRank := LEAST(‘any person in heaven’,God) > ‘John the Baptist’;
If this is true (as shown above), you should never sell yourself short.
