A Costly Gift,

6th February 2014


It may seem so strange to us, but what Mary and Joseph did for their son would have been seen as completely orthodox and completely ordinary within Hebrew culture and society. It was a tradition stretching back to the Patriarchs.

Their first born son was given to the Lord, thereby claiming the promises made to Abraham.

What will you give today that would be as costly as a baby, new born and precious?
