Luke 2:16-2016 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
Thank you, LORD Jesus, that you are still found and known through the active response of searching for you. May I be willing to share the discovery I’ve made with others at this time. But I also want to find you and know you better in my inner life too. Please give me that balance of active following and heart-pondering reflection, especially in this Advent season.
