Mary: The Mother of the Savior of the World
WOW! To be the mother of the Savior of the world! What an honor - what a responsibility. How do you raise a kid like that? And for you dads, imagine how Joseph felt, raising the Promised Messiah as his own child.
Mary and Joseph both knew that Jesus would be called the Son of the Most High and would be given the throne of his forefather David (Luke 1:32). But how could they have really known what was to be, from the innocence of childhood to the pain and agony of Christs final days on earth? But from the very beginning, they had hope!
Remember what it felt like the days and weeks just after your baby was born? You knew you were holding a miracle. You dreamed of what he/she would become. You hoped and prayed for a bright and wonderful future, yet you really had no idea what to expect. Did Billy Grahams parents realize the influence he would have in this world? What about Martin Luthers mother and father? And our own sons & daughters: how great will their impact be?

Today's Scripture Readings*
How little we know, even when we think we know. The bleakness around us sometimes overwhelms us, but You have already given us many things with which to overcome. Just as Mary only had a vague idea of what she had been promised for her Son, her daily "ponderings" must have eventually produced a hope that could confidently say, "whatever He says, do it." May our hopes develop into reality as well.
