Merry Christmas! My hope and prayer are that you and your family may have peace this day.
And if you are reading the Christmas story from Luke 2 today . . . consider that the manger is mentioned 3 times!
Manger - a feed trough. The manger in Jesus day was probably rectangular in shape, chiseled out of the soft rock in the area. From a distance, it might have looked to us like a bread pan.
Bethlehem - "House of Bread."
Jesus - the "Bread of Life!"
Think about it!
God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>
