The Sound of Someone Getting Rescued
Earlier this month, I read about a six-year-old girl and her daddy in a car, hearing a police siren. The father thought, “Was I speeding? Is he coming for me?”
But the little girl said, “Ooh, I love that sound.”
He was shocked. “Why?”
“Because that’s the sound of someone getting rescued.”
Over these last few weeks, we have heard the Christmas story spoken and sung hundreds of times. But don’t let the repetition dull you to its impact. It’s not myth. It’s not empty ritual. It’s not the soundtrack to a month of mindless consumerism.
It’s the sound of someone getting rescued.
