51 Then He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them, but His mother kept all these things in her heart. 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men. Luke 2:51-52
Earlier in Luke chapter 2 it says that Mary kept all of these things in her heart and she pondered them...that was when the shepherds came to worship Jesus, her baby boy...she had already had the angel come and announce her pregnancy, His birth. Then they had brought Him to the temple and Simeon prophesied over Him then Anna. Then when He was twelve He had gone to the temple and sat with the Pharisees and not only understood them He asked them questions! They were amazed by this Jesus...her baby boy...
She pondered all of these things in her heart. Her baby boy, Jesus, the Messiah. Like the song says...when she kissed her little baby, she kissed the face of God...oh Mary did you know?
I cannot even imagine the heartache she must of kept in her heart...her hopes, her dreams....her little boy...her baby boy...Jesus. Jesus the Messiah...the One that would be crucified to save us all.
