And they came in haste and found their way
to Mary and Joseph, and the baby
as He lay in the manger.
And when they had seen this,

pondering them in her heart.

glorifying and praising God
for all that they had heard and seen."
Can you see the connection between what the heart believes and the mouth confesses?
That's where the true treasure lies.
