“‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’ ” ~ Matthew 2:6
We have been doing a lot of learning about the Christmas story around our house the past week. And one thing that just keeps sticking with me is the way God didn't use anything that was 'great'. He picked a small town that people considered unimportant, and He picked a seemingly random young girl. It has really just been making me stop to think about what things I see as unimportant, that God might just use for something extraordinary. The entire town of Bethlehem missed the birth of Christ. They were all there, but no one took notice. What kinds of things are right before me that I am missing?
I would love for you to join me by posting your favorite Christ centered Christmas song. My personal goal is to post a different Christ-centered Christmas song each day between now and Christmas. (The only rule is that it has to be Christ-centered. Obviously no songs about Santa, Christmas trees or whatever...)
