Jesse Tree: Day 26

December 24

Scripture: Luke 2: 1-5

Reading: times taking a trip is fun, like when we go on vacation. Sometimes it’s not so fun, like when we go to the doctor when we’re sick. But usually when we’re on a journey, whether a short trip or a long one, we experience something new. We learn things on a journey.

Mary and Joseph went on a journey. If we were to take the same journey by car it wouldn’t take very long, but because Mary and Joseph were walking, it took a long time. They had to go to Bethlehem because the country’s ruler said they had to. But it was all part of God’s plan. That is one thing that Joseph and Mary learned on their journey.

Talk About:   What new journeys did you take this past year?

Prayer:  Guide our journeys wherever they take us, holy God.
