Third Option, Second Person

A fable I once heard that seems appropriate to start Advent…
The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit held a meeting in heaven to discuss the terrible situation down on earth. Things had gotten very bad.
They discussed it among themselves and realized that there were three options. One, they could destroy the earth and start over. Two, they could walk away from it and let humankind fend for itself all alone. Or three, one of them could go down there to be among them and show them the way.
They chose the third option.
And the Son eagerly volunteered.
