If you want to see people on the edge of insanity, just watch the way families treat their babies at Christmastime. The poor child has no warning. Red furry stocking cap, goofy elfish shoes that curl at the toes. And the pictures we take! Baby snoozing under tree, baby on Santa’s lap, Santa with wet spot on lap.
Is not the Christmas story the story of a baby? The moment that shaped all others. Mary’s eyes falling on the face of her just-born son. The first to whisper, “So this is what God looks like.” Never in mankind’s wildest imaginings did we consider that God would enter the world as an infant. John 1:14 says, “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” Would you like to see God? Well then take a look at the baby Jesus.
