“And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” (Luke 2:12)

Some of the best and most expensive gifts come in small packages. Take for instance diamond earrings or a gold watch. Jewelry is very small but can cost thousands of dollars. The exterior packaging does not correlate with the potential value of the gift. Our all powerful Living God chose to package his most valuable gift for all of humanity in a very small package as well. God humbly packaged himself as the Savior King of the entire world in the form of a small baby born in a manger. Though Christ Jesus was God, “he did not demand and cling to his rights as God. He made himself nothing; he took the humble position of a slave and appeared in human form. And in human form he obediently humbled himself even further by dying a criminal’s death on a cross.” (Phil 2:5-8) “Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.” (2 Cor 9:15) Have you received the gift of eternal salvation? Good things come in small packages. Trust in Jesus today.
