I love how my son arranged our manger scene. Had I been the one to arrange the figures, I would have neatly placed each shepherd and wise man so that you could see their faces, as if posed for a picture. My son, however, placed everyone (even the animals) so that they are facing and surrounding Jesus. To me his arrangement is a picture of adoration.
Isn’t that what Christmas is truly about? Focusing on Jesus. Adoring Jesus. So often in life I get caught up in everything else and don’t take the time to truly adore my Savior. I love the Christmas carol “O Come All Ye Faithful.”
“O come let us adore Him. O come let us adore Him. O come let us adore Him Christ the Lord.”
As we put the finishing touches on all our Christmas gifts and plans, may our focus and adoration be directed to Jesus Christ the Savior of the world! Merry Christmas!
