And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” (Luke‬ ‭2‬:‭12‬ NKJV)

Imagine if the birth of Christ happened today, how would it be written? Maybe it would be something like this:

“And suddenly an angel appeared to the Detroit sanitation workers as they hung out at the garbage truck garage. Frightened, they ran for cover, just knowing that all kinds of badness was about to break out! But the angel spoke peace to them, announcing the birth of the Savior, ‘And this will be the sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in a homeless man’s jacket and lying in a shopping cart in a parking garage on Junction Street.’ And suddenly the garage was filled with angels singing and praising God, blending worship with diesel fumes. Once the workers realized that it wasn’t a gang drive-by, and making vows to visit their mommas at church, they scrambled into their garbage trucks and caravanned to the parking garage and found the baby just like they were told, along with a frightened teenage girl and her boyfriend.”

Sometimes we miss just how strange the original story was! But God’s plan was with a purpose, that the Savior would be welcomed by all nationalities and social classes. Take time this Christmas to appreciate the story God created for all mankind and you! You are divinely loved!
