Bethlehem

Sunday, December 23, 2012

in Advent 2012

Bethlehem was a small town of no great significance.  It was however, the home of the family of David, the ancestors of Jesus.  It was to Bethlehem that Joseph was called to go by the edict of the Emperor.  And so the prophecy was fulfilled that Bethlehem would truly be the house of bread – the birthplace of the Bread of Life.

Prayer: 

Holy God, It is true that we often judge the importance of things by size or monetary value.  You have a different way of judging importance.  The role we play in life is important, not because of the money we make or the power we have.  It is important because it fulfills your will.  In the eyes of the world, we may always be insignificant, but if we fulfill your purpose, then our role becomes Divine.
