Luke 2:22- 24, 39- 40
Prayer for the day:
God, help me with simple obedience. In the routines of following you, help me see the importance of common acts of worship, humble service, and faithful follow-through. Like Mary and Joseph, make me consistent in “regular” things, open to your wisdom, full of the grace of God.
Question for reflection:
How will/did the routines of your day today draw you closer to Jesus and honor God?
