Mary Did you know

While listening to and meditating on the song, “mary did you know,” this morning, I thought of and wrote this reflection.


What strikes me is that Jesus needed someone to take care of him as a little baby. What if Mary and Joseph had been unwilling to wrap him in those swaddling clothes and make sure he was snugly tucked into that manger? What if, like so many sad situations today we find, she had decided, since there was no room, she didn’t want this responsibility at all and just abandoned poor baby Jesus? God knew what he was doing, though. He got people who would nurture and take care of his Son. I thank God they accepted this responsibility. May I be as willing to accept whatever God calls me to!
