Day 26: He's Here!

Read: Jesus Storybook Bible 176-183 or Luke 1-2 Think: Though we are a few days before Christmas, we now turn to reflect on Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem and Jesus’ birth. What do you think Mary was thinking as she heard the news of her miraculous pregnancy? What does it say about God caring for the poor and outcast that he would send his Son to be born to ordinary people in a stable? Pray: That we would trust God in the midst of confusing or bewildering times. That we would be thankful that Jesus came not as the earthly son of some earthly king and queen, but as a lowly servant who could then experience the everyday life of the people of the land.
