Personal Time with Jesus - Day 8

A Night of Nights

When the angels had returned to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, “Let’s go to Bethlehem! Let’s see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger. After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child. All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished, but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often. The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them. -Luke 2:15-20

Try to imagine what this night was like for Mary. She has just given birth to her baby next to the man she is to marry, but really doesn't know. And now she must figure out how to take care of this child, who really is not her own, but God's. Today, remember that even though your children have earthly parents, they too are God's children. Are you training them up to be part of his family?
