Understand the Gift
An angel announces the miraculous conception that is going to take place in your womb. Your pregnant cousin's in utero baby leaps for joy upon your arrival prompting Elizabeth to prophesy over you. Your betrothed also has a dream confirming your historic pregnancy. Shepherds tell an amazing story of angels appearing to them on the night of your son's birth. Wise Men from the East follow a star to come and worship your son and bring him expensive gifts. A man, Simeon, who has been promised he will not die until he sees the Messiah prophesies over your baby. An eighty four year old woman also prophesies over your son. Even at age 12 your son is amazing the religious leaders of his day. Yet you did not fully "Understand the Gift" that had been given to you. Such is the case with our gifts. We don't immediately see the whole picture of what we've been given, why it has been given and to whom it was given for. Therefore, like Mary, "ponder these things in your heart" as you seek to "Understand the Gift" because its purpose is far greater than you first imagined.
And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” But they did not understand the statement which He spoke to them. (Luke 2:49-50 NKJV)
