Luke 2:19  But Mary treasured up all these words, pondering in her heart what they might mean. 

We go back to Mary, the virgin who gave birth to Jesus.  She looked and listen to all that was happening to and around her and all that was said to and around her and treasured them.  She did not understand what it all meant.  She had no idea that her Son would end up dying for our sins.  She just kept everything in her heart as a treasure and wondered at them.  We too can treasure all we read, see and hear God doing.  But we can understand some of it because God has given us His Holy Spirit.  We have the wonderful treasure of His written word, the Holy Bible.  Our question is do we treasure it?  Do we treasure it enough to read it and contemplate on the meaning?  When we read it in prayer God will give us understanding of how to apply  what we read for where we are in our walk with Him on this earth.  Let us more than treasure and ponder.  Let us meditate, praise worship and obey.
