Day 24 – Luke 2:8-21
So here it is, the birth of Jesus, the time we have been leading up to. Sometimes it can be heard to switch of and focus on this day with all the food being cooked, catching up with family and entertaining the younger members of the family.
One of the things I really like about spending Christmas with Annie’s family is that before they share out presents, everyone sits down while Annie’s dad reads this passage out to everyone. It’s something my family never did when I grew up, but something I can really appreciate now. Don’t make today so busy that you forget why we get this holiday in the first place. Take today to just read the passage and take in the elements of the story.
