“Glory to God in the highest heaven
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” (Luke 2.14 NIV)
We have just finished the “Christmas season.” As you reflect back on this time when we remember the birth of Jesus, how did you see the glory of God in the midst of the typical holiday rush?
In what ways is Luke’s account of the birth of Jesus sort of anticlimactic, just a mention that Mary gave birth to a firstborn son? In what ways might this tell us about what Luke considered most important about the story of Jesus’ birth?
How has the good news of Jesus provided you and the people you know joy?
How have you given glory to God today?
