Countdown to Christmas - Day 4

Day 4: Luke 2:7
and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them in the inn. 
Nobody wanted them.  Nobody wanted Jesus born in their home.

He had to be born in a barn.  Surrounded by animals.
If Jesus came into the world in the middle of a mess, wouldn't he come into our lives in the middle of our messes?
Sometimes I forget that he is not a snob.  Jesus is greater than everything, but he humbled Himself to take on the lowest of the low.
What is your manger right now?  Ask Jesus to come into your manger - make room for him and ask him to make it a beautiful place.
