On that first Christmas night, Joseph searched through the inns of Bethlehem looking for a place of comfort for Mary. Despite his pleadings we read: “And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn”. - Luke 2:7
Too often we let the distractions of the world crowd out the Savior. Like those in Bethlehem we don’t make room for Him in our busy lives. Each year as Christmas draws near I paint a nativity piece. For me it has become a tradition and my own way of making room for Him. May we each find ways to make room in our lives for the Savior - not only at Christmas, but always.
