imagesOn this day we celebrate Christ’s coming into the world.  His birth was announced not to priests or government officials, but to shepherds.  Poor, simple hill folk who did not go to church all that often since they had work to do every day.  images-1Because they could not make it to church they were despised by those in power.  They were looked down upon and marginalized.  Now isn’t  that interesting.

The next time you look at someone with scorn, the next time you feel better than someone, remember that Christ’s birth was not announced to those such as you, he came first to the downtrodden, the marginalized, the scorned.  Christ came not to those in the church, but to those who were outside, left out, lonely.   If Christ were alive today would he come to you?
