Because There Was No Room For Him In The Inn

‘There Is A Stable” 9×12” oil on board by Sherry Meidell

In Luke 2:7 it says: “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 him in the inn.”

But there was a stable and there was a manger. And Christ came into this world, into the arms of a loving mother Mary and protecting care of Joseph. 

Sometimes in life there seems only one way and when that falls through we think, “Well, that’s it. No other option. No room in the inn.” But life is filled with creativity and options. So when one way doesn’t work we look for another answer to our problem. We seek for other solutions. And we look for the joy and peace that the example from the life of Christ brings into our life. The example of caring for others. Of leading others to finding God in this world of chaos and finding times of goodness in our lives to share with others. 

The multitude of angels said, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” 

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” 

So no matter what your religion, it’s a good time to look upward and inward, share kindness with those around us. Happy holidays, and from me, a merry Christmas.
