And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him.—Luke 2:33
If you are a father, you know what it means to marvel at new birth. This is especially true with your first child. Your early days home are filled with adrenaline, and you'll run on fumes till you finally crash. Bringing this baby home can be awkward and scary and equal parts awesome and terrifying. But imagine walking into a church that first week and encountering the most righteous and devout man you know, who then looks down on your child and says this!
Lord, now you are letting your servant [Simeon] depart in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel.—Luke 2:29-32
Marvel, at the child born to be Savior, light, revelation, and glory to the world.
DO THIS: Spend 5 minutes, marveling with God.
PRAY THIS: God, we don't deserve it, but you did it, and men everywhere marvel. Therefore so do I.
