Read: Luke 2:7 (Manger)

Kings and Presidents are normally accustomed to the finest things.  They travel first class, wear the finest clothes, and sleep on the fanciest linens.  This is true with almost all earthly leaders.  However, when Jesus (the King of Kings) comes, He spends His first night on earth NOT in the palace, but in a pen . . . a lowly manger (mangers are feeding trough’s for animals.)  This demonstrates for us the humility of Jesus and the lengths He went to join us on this earth.

Question of the Day:  Being humble does not mean thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.  What are some areas of your life where you can follow the example of Jesus and think of yourself less?

NOTE:  Each day between now and Christmas, I will be posting these devotional thoughts concerning Advent to this blog.  The artwork for each day is a product of children from Wildwood Community Church‘s Children’s ministry.  You can also access these posts via the “wildwoodchildren” Instagram feed or Wildwood Community Church’s Facebook page.
