Luke 2:19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
It’s amazing to me how quickly we forget the good things that God has promised us and done for us -- and not only do we forget, we begin to grumble!
Twice in the book of Luke, it is mentioned that Mary kept these things and pondered them. It seems that Mary always kept a place in her heart where she stored away God’s promises.
We, too, must create a place in our hearts to store away Gods gifts and promises to us so that we can always remain in a state of joy all the days of our lives.
Let’s reflect this holiday season, and unearth the many buried treasures with which God has blessed us. Let’s ponder those things and praise God for His goodness. He has already done so much in our lives and He wants to do more!
