Good Words for Today: December 17

Many of us approach the holidays burdened with care. There are career questions, health issues, family problems, financial difficulties, and a host of unfulfilled dreams. We worry because we don’t feel equal to the challenges we face. Christmas reminds us that God is God and we’re not. He can arrange for a virgin to become pregnant. He can cause a Roman ruler to order a census at precisely the right moment in history. He can ensure that the baby will be born at exactly the place prophesied 700 years earlier. He can bring together angels, shepherds and Wise Men to celebrate that miraculous birth. And he can take a tiny baby born in a stable and make him the Savior of the world. Now if God can do all that, what are you so worried about?
