When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
Luke 2: 17-20
Today’s reflection is a song from Stuart Barbour, entitled ‘Forever and Always’. You can listen to the song by clicking on the picture above. Stu is a singer songwriter and also the Worship Pastor at The Point Church.
The passage today and Stu’s song both talk of glorifying and praising God. Christians believe that part of this is being thankful for the blessings that God has given to us. So today we want to challenge you, whatever you believe, to make a list of 5 things that you are thankful for, whatever they are, big or small; your house or the lovely cake you just ate!
The first line of the song is ‘Come set aside the thoughts of the day…‘ So take some time to do this, put aside all that is going on in your day and spend a few minutes thinking before you make your list. When you are done, then share your list with someone, or if you are brave enough, onto our Facebook page!
