Read: Luke 1:5-12
Christmas is a time of year when many people make “wish lists.” What if there was something on your wish list that you did not get this year . . . or next year . . . or the year after that? Every year you asked for it, but you never got it? How would you feel? What if that thing that you wanted was something very important? Zechariah and his wife Elizabeth wanted a baby. They asked for a child year after year, but they never got one. In fact, they became old people and still did not have a child.
Question of the day: How do you think Zechariah felt when (year after year) he asked God to give him a child, and the answer was always “no”?
NOTE: Each day between now and Christmas, I will be posting these devotional thoughts concerning Advent to this blog. The artwork for each day is a product of children from Wildwood Community Church‘s Children’s ministry.
