Pile Up the Glories

Sometimes we can be so engrossed in study that we forget to worship. We must minimize this at all costs. To help fight this, it can be refreshing to simply write out glorious things that you see in a text and just worship God for his beauty and truths you see.

Study Questions

  1. What reasons do you have to be thankful this Christmas season?
  2. What do you think it means that Jesus will “reign over the house of Jacob forever?” (Luke 1:33)
  3. Read through Luke 1:26–33 with family or a friend and write down the glories you see. Then praise God together for those truths.
