The world has felt pretty chaotic for the past couple years and that can make it hard to see the good. But Advent is a season that stands as a beacon of light guiding us through the darkness. It is fixed point in our calendar that invites us to see every good gift God has given us each year. It reminds us that God is with us. Our new Advent devotional, Every Good Gift, available as both a 5-day version and 28-day version, is an invitation to gather around and give out the good in a season when we all need it most.

Written by Compassion Canada writers Alyssa Esparaz, Rebekah Malbrecht and Rayo Adegoke, these two devotionals invite you to spend your Advent season unwrapping every good gift that comes with Christ—hope, peace, joy and love—through stories from around the world and key verses from the book of James. They will also help you explore how you can give these good gifts to others in meaningful ways this Advent season.
