According to the book of James, we are to show no favoritism. Most of us would agree with this commandment at face value, but do we really live it out in the real world? How do we provide an atmosphere of “inclusion”? Would some people feel “not good enough” to seek the Christ Child in our midst? Find ways to prioritize grace and acceptance, so that everyone will want to share in the celebration of the Savior.
In welcoming the “shepherds” of the world, we welcome God.
