What can we learn from the baby who would be our Savior?
Well, I want to focus on the baby himself… as the man deserves more blog entries then I can write right now.
Each of us comes to earth in the same way. Yes, some babies have more challenges then others, but we all come as a bundle of love to a mom and a dad. Jesus took that life to save each and every one of us, and yet so many lives are wasted by parents and ones self thinking they aren’t good enough. I LOVE that song “Jesus Once Was a Little Child“. Honestly, in the whole world that is our afterlife I really HOPE there are some home videos of what Jesus was like as a child. I often wonder that as I look at my own children. Was he silly, did he play tag, did he cry when he was hurt? Did he whine? 🙂
Jesus came of very lowly circumstances. He grew up that way and continued that way. So often we think without money we can’t do anything in this world. Well, we obviously can.
His parents did a lot to protect him. That nasty King Herod, I’m sure there’s a special place for him in “heaven”. It’s our job to protect our children in the same way, and while it doesn’t mean we have to flee to another country (at least, I hope not) it does mean it’s our obligation.
Anyway, it’s kind of hard to sum up all I feel about that sweet baby. I LOVE nativities with real babies, because each baby possesses the same ability to change the world (well, not he SAME ability, but I think you get my meaning). Also, new babies are always such happy things, it’s a lovely thing to celebrate.
