“So the shepherds hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told” (Luke 2:16-20).
Emmanuel… God with us! He came back for us. He didn’t leave us. He remembered us. Just as Mary treasured up all these things in her heart, are you able to “treasure up” the goodness and love of God this Christmas?
Take a moment and “treasure” our Lord. Merry Christmas!
