“She…laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn”. (Luke 2:7)
Reflection: The birth of Christ was planned by God from all eternity, and the details of his birth and life were announced by the prophets. How could there be no room for him who owns the world, and every inch of room in the whole universe?
Obviously, God did this on purpose. He wanted to show that His Son comes as a Savior, to reconcile a world that is at enmity with God.
Prayer: Lord, as you seek room in our own hearts today, enable us to also make room for every human life. Amen.
