Scripture tells us that on the first Christmas, when the shepherds arrived in Bethlehem and saw the baby in the manger, they understood what had been told to them by the angels. Why was it at that moment that they understood the message?
Perhaps it is because a baby is so approachable. After all, the angels said that the Savior was born for all people. Nobody, no matter how poor or lowly, should be afraid to approach him. And how can God become more approachable than by becoming a little baby?
God continues to reveal himself in the tiny babies yet in the womb. He invites us to see Him in them, and to love him in them.
