I think about these people and kind of feel sorry for them. Think about it...
While they are worried, fretting and stressing, The God of the universe was doing something miraculous in the barn out back.
While they were wrapped up in their own thing, worried about their four and no more, Jesus, The Savior, was making his great entrance into the world.
How heartbreaking it must have been to know that you'd missed out on such a wonderful event, and in your own backyard, no less!
Today, I fear we do the same.
All the traveling, all the traditions and decorating. Trying to make sure our own is cared for and have a "memorable" Christmas. While God is doing something amazing in our backyard.
Don't get so wrapped up in wrapping...So distracted by decor...So festive for your four,that you miss God making an appearance in your life.
They can have the nice soft bed, the 5 star Inn and the warm hearth. Give me the cold stable, the smell of fresh hay in the air. I want to be where LOVE is being birthed into a hopeless world.
