God, who looks upon us from above, chose to be born as a humble baby looking up as everyone else looked down on Him. Not born to a king in a palace so that only the elite could relate to Him, but born into poverty and anonymity, in a feed trough surrounded by manure. The Bible says Jesus later grew in wisdom and stature, but He was born in an animal stall to say that God’s salvation is not beyond the reach of anyone—rich or poor, free or slave, clean or dirty, healthy or sick—willing to embrace a little humility as one would embrace a little babe. Merry Christmas.
