We know the “Christmas story” so well, we could recite it easily to others. We could sing the songs that we first learned as children. But, it is worth remembering the humble beginnings, as encapsulated in Luke 2:7, of the “greatest story ever told.”
1. Have you read Luke 2:7 lately?
2. What do you imagine might have been your reaction if you had personally witnessed the scene as depicted in the verse above? What might be your reaction now?
Challenge: It’s often good for us to imagine ourselves, and gauge our reactions, as to how we might have witnessed a historical event. Take time to think, and then pray on, the miracle that was shown as depicted by Luke 2:7. As you go through this Christmas season, pay attention to your own sense of wonder and awe as if you were there also.
