Luke 2:19
"But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart." ESV
Mary knew she had just given birth to God, Himself, born in the flesh, the long awaited Messiah. The greatest of miraculous things happened over the course of His birth and the heavens were opened and the celebration there was phenomenal. Mary did not leave that stable thinking this was just a wonderful experience now we must go back home and live our normal lives. No! She knew the infinite value of what had taken place. She recognized the amazing treasure of which she had been chosen to participate. Mary kept it all fresh in her mind, thinking on it all the time. Are we like Mary, or is the wonderful gift of Jesus Christ a mere remembrance during special times or when someone else recalls it?
Heavenly Father, forgive us for letting our minds wonder away from the greatest gift in eternity to the mundane and temporary thing of this world. Give us hearts and minds like Mary so that we will treasure our Lord and always meditate on Him. In His name we pray, Amen.
