“But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart.” When I was little I thought the word ponder meant to pound. In a child’s mind it made perfect sense for Mary to treasure the things that were happening and pound them into her heart. Today I know what that word means, but it makes me think about how children minds work and the innocent faith they have. Mary’s accepting faith is just the kind that God wants from all of us, whether old or young. As amazing as the story of the first Christmas seems to some, the fact is that it’s true. God conceived a child in Mary so that He could be born human, live as our brother, suffer and hurt just like we do and die. After death He would conquer the devil and rise again to return to His heavenly glory. Think about it, treasure it and POUND it into your heart.
