Treasure The Message – December 11, 2015

Luke 2:19, But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

This week, in our Advent devotion, we have been looking at the idea or heading of joy. Here is today’s thought, treasure the moments. Luke 2:19 says, “But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.”  The phrase ‘treasured up’ means she thought about all the things the shepherds told her, all that Elizabeth had told her, and all that the angel had told her, and now she was treasuring it all up. When you treasure something, you regard it as precious and you cherish it. As God’s children, we get the opportunity this Christmas season to read God’s Word, and celebrate Christmas. We should hold to its message like something important and valuable. This Christmas, treasure the moments; treasure the message, and treasure the Messiah.

 Think about it, and have a blessed weekend!
