What is Jesus trying to teach me with the celebration of His birth?
This mother and baby reminds me that we have not been able to picture Mary and the Infant Jesus as they must have been; American infants have Jesus looking like a fair-haired child. Anyway, Jesus did come as a helpless child and I like to think that He chose to be born in a cave to be accessible to all!
The vulnerability of Jesus is what I am contemplating today. He comes so small, so helpless, so poor materially, and this was a choice! What am I learning from this?
