The beauty of His humble birth

away-in-a-manger-king-size-bed-jesus“Some people tell us that we need to have beautiful homes in order to draw people to Christ. They say that our beautiful home is analogous to God’s beauty…they obviously have forgotten the manger, a squalling infant covered in amniotic fluid and blood, wrapped in coarse rags, and the bleeding and bruised naked man hanging on a cross. It’s his beauty, not our homemaking skills that draws a heart to love and worship.”
