Christmas in July (3)

Bible Reading: Luke 2:36-38
Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Christmas in July (3)When stores have big sales, they are filled with many people waiting in line. Often these people become impatient and are unkind to one another.

In our Bible verses today, we read about Anna. She was a prophetess who spoke God’s messages. Anna had been a widow for many years, and she lived in the temple in Jerusalem. Anna “worshiped God by fasting and praying day and night” (verse 37b).

When Anna saw baby Jesus in the temple, she praised God and told other people about the Messiah. Anna had been patient for many years. Finally, she was able to see God’s Son.

Sometimes we may become impatient, too. Then we should stop and think about the many blessings we receive from God every day. Take time today to write down some of your blessings. Thank God for all He does for you. — JB*

“‘Anna was there when Joseph and Mary came to the Temple. She praised God and talked about Jesus to all those who were waiting for God to free Jerusalem.” Luke 2:38

PRAYER: Lord, I want to be patient like Anna. Help me to remember my many blessings today. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
