The Lone Manger

Sometime when you’re tempted to binge-watch “The Simpsons,” reach for a pencil instead.  Jot down the names of five people who have had a positive impact on you?  How would your life be different if they had never been born?

We know about the “No Vacancy” sign at the Bethlehem Holiday Inn.

When Gabriel told young Mary that she’d bear a son, what if she and Joseph had said, “No, thank you?”

How would your life be different if that baby had not been born?

“I am here with good news for you which will bring great joy to all the people.  This very day in David’s town your Savior was born – Christ the Lord!  And this is what will prove it to you:  you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”  Luke 2:10-11
