Entrusted with the care of God

John August Swanson
Shepherds

The shepherds went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. Luke 2:16

God entrusted the infant Jesus— Emmanuel, God with us—
to humble human beings
to care for him…
love him…
cherish him.

Today I will remember that each of us has been made by God in love to embody love and carry love with us. Wherever I find God’s human children, may I always hasten to treat them with love and reverence.

Merry Christmas!

    Thank you for sharing your loving wisdom! I’m thinking on this, with wonder. Those were amazing people to whom Christ came, to whom God entrusted love. I think of them, and of all of us, and smile.
