When the days were completed for their purificationLuke 2:22
according to the law of Moses,
Mary and Joseph took Jesus up to Jerusalem
to present him to the Lord.
Today I am reminded that Jesus Christ was a living, breathing person. Starting as a baby, later blossoming into our guide, prophet, model, and savior.
Perhaps that gives me hope for my own life, right? Because there sure are days when I feel hope is a far stretch.
