She wrapped Him in cloths and placed Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. – Luke 2:7
For many, this is the season excess; more gifts, more food, more parties, more decorations, more, more, more! We jam pact our December days and nights until there is no room for another thing, another activity, another moment for anyone else. So full, yet so empty. In the days of Caesar Augustus, when a young couple came into town, there was no room for them either. The people were so full of themselves, most missed the most important event of all time. Someone made room and they were filled for a life time.
May we push back from the table and make room in our lives, in our budget and in our Christmas for Christ.
