2:15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.”
2:16 So they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the child lying in the manger.
2:17 When they saw this, they made known what had been told them about this child;
2:18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds told them.
2:19 But Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.
2:20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.
But Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.
I always loved Luke’s personal note on Mary. It reveals the heart of Mary and why God would choose her to being the savior into the world. Mary was a person who loved the Lord and treasured even the word’s of His messenger (the angel) in her heart. She loved serving the Lord.
While we do not worship Mary we ought to take note of Mary’s extraordinary character. She was a woman among women. Let us be open to the plans that the Lord has for us and let us treasure the word of the Lord that has been given to us.
