The Christmas Story: Day 14

When Mary’s baby was eight days old, he was given his name – Jesus. Soon it was time for Joseph and Mary to do as the Jewish law said, and dedicate their first son to God. So they took the baby to God’s Temple at Jerusalem.

There was a good old man called Simeon living in the city. God had promised him that before he died he would see the King. Simeon was there when Mary and Joseph came to the Temple with Jesus. He took the baby in his arms and thanked God for him.

“God has kept his promise,” Simeon said. “Now I shall die content. For I have seen the Saviour.”
