Seeing your life through the lens of the Gospel. Luke 2:22-40

Read 726 Times
1. It was a day that started without any expectation of something unusual. It turned out to be a day with a meeting they would remember for a long time. Perhaps you have had significant meetings on what you expect to be just an ordinary day?

2. Simeon gave thanks because his eyes saw the salvation God had prepared. In what ways have you experienced Godís salvation in your life: an experience of being loved, or discovering a sense of purpose in life or
being touched by the wonders of creation?
Give thanks for those memories.

3. The final sentence speaks of Jesus as one who grew and became strong and was filled with wisdom. Recall times when you had a sense of growing up in some way. What brought that about? Think also of how you have seen growth in another person.
