The Birth of The Christ

As I am pondering this morning the birth of Jesus, I am reminded He represents the Truth and appears to us in a childlike form, unlike the allegory of Adam and Eve who appear as adults.  Then, I begin to think about the qualities of God’s child which are loving, forgiving, resilient, expecting Good, humility and on and on and on.  Luke 2:40 reads “And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.”  There is definitely a difference in “childlikeness” and “childishness” and that verse certainly points that out.

Today I will be conscious and alert to my thoughts and celebrate this birth reverently rather than get caught up in gift-giving, decorating and partying.  There is nothing wrong with any of this but we need to stay cognizant of the real celebration here.
