Re: Verse reading–Luke 18:18-30 (day two)
The Sunday before Christmas we looked at Luke 12 and the parable of the Rich Fool who also decided to put treasure on things he could possess and hoard.  Didn’t end well that time either.  Pastor Don very shrewdly also included Luke’s version of the birth of the Christ-child.  As Mary, surely still weary from a long journey and a delivery, saw the events unfold around her she made a choice; she treasured.  The visit from the angel, the star, the shepherds, and the wise-men all came to adore this child.  Her response was simple, she put her joy in her heart and to the Lord.  No excuses for the condition of the barn or an apology to the Kings for the meekness of their clothes.  She treasured this where it would be eternally valuable.
