Luke 2:22-40 The Presentation in the Temple

Reflection: Present him to the Lord. Joseph and Mary take Jesus to the Temple to fulfill the law of Moses: “Consecrate to me every first-born that opens the womb among the Israelites, both of man and beast, for it belongs to me” (Ex 13:2). Jesus is thus presented, or offered back, to the Father.

It is said that a child is never given to the parents by God, merely entrusted to their care. We belong to God, the author of life. We come from God, we will return to God. If our life belongs to God, we must live according to God’s will.

What are you offering to the Lord?
