Reflection; A most unexpected sign (Is 7:10-14; Lk 1:26-38)
When a ruler like Ahaz is invited to ask the Lord for a sign, we can speculate what he might want: A military victory? An infusion of gold to fund his army? A luxurious palace?
God thinks differently: The sign God promises is a baby. All over the world, to young and probably bewildered human families, God continues to send this sign. What more proof do we need to believe in blessing?
