The Eleventh Day of Christmas

Luke 2:39-40 (NASB)

39 When they had performed everything according to the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee, to their own city of Nazareth. 40 The Child continued to grow and become strong, increasing in wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.

Lord, Mary and Joseph, the earthly parents to whom You entrusted Your Only Son, performed everything according to Your Law, then took Jesus home to raise Him as a fully human child. You could have sent Jesus to the world He created in glory and majesty. Instead He came as a baby in a family who obeyed Your laws. Give us a heart to do Your will and serve You as Jesus did. In His name. Amen.
