I can only imagine the celebration that took place at the birth of John the Baptist. How overjoyed his parents must have been. I pray that everyone would revel in the birth of the child that has been entrusted to each of them and that each one would be a source of awe as they are nurtured and cared for. God has entrusted each of us parents with the treasure, more precious than gold. We are to guide them, through holiness and instruction and right living to the Father that made them. An awesome responsibility!
