Good Words for Today: December 16

“He has brought down the mighty from their throne and exalted those of humble estate” (Luke 1:52).  There are many right ways to celebrate Christmas, and only one completely wrong way. We miss Christmas completely when we think it is about us. Christmas is about what God has done for us that we could never do for ourselves. Grace always comes down. Pride always goes up. The lower you go, the closer you come to Bethlehem. When we finally go low enough to kneel before the manger, then the “dear Christ enters in.”
