Wisdom and Favor of God!

The child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favor of God was upon him.

Luke 2:40

When Joseph and Mary took Jesus up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord, they chose not to follow the Jewish custom of “redeeming” him and claiming his as their own as in Numbers 18:15: “Everything that opens the womb of all flesh, whether man or beast, which they offer to the Lord, shall be yours. Nevertheless, the firstborn of man you shall redeem, and the firstborn of unclean animals you shall redeem.” 

Instead, they offered him back to the Lord as they knew that Jesus had been conceived by the Holy Spirit. They knew that Jesus belonged more to the world them to themselves and selflessly promised to share him with everyone. Mary and Joseph freely placed the Messiah into our arms out of their love for God and the world in a most genuine act of generosity and courage preparing Jesus for his mission as the “Savior of the World.” 

Jesus is our Savior, King!
