Luke 2:19, 51, “Mary pondered/treasured these things.”

So many people live a life of ease avoiding the hard questions – the ponderings. They don’t want to waste the mental energy on these questions, or they think it is all beyond them and so they do something else. The biblical writer of Ecclesiastes records that some people believe that we ought to eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die. Amazingly, the most important questions that we need to face are not faced at all. We might spend more time deciding on what takeaway to eat than to contemplate the big questions of life?
