We sometimes hear that Christmas proves how important we are to God. After all, he sent his Son to save us. That’s true, but it’s not the whole story. Christmas proves how messed up we are. Jesus didn’t come for perfect people because perfect people don’t need a Savior. If you don’t see yourself as a sinner, then Christmas is just another holiday. But if you are wiling to admit that you are lost, then you can be found. Christmas is for broken people who aren’t ashamed to admit it. The self-righteous need not apply. They missed him when he came the first time, and they still miss him today.
