On today’s show we focused on the Nativity of Our Lord. You can choose one or all of these themes for your meditation:
1. The Birth of Jesus in Bethlehem
a. The journey to Bethlehem came about due to a decree of a pagan emperor. Mary and Joseph made the journey to participate in the census
b. Christ was born in a stable, teaching us the value of poverty.
c. Contrast the glorious song of the angels with the stable.
2. The Shepherds – They responded to the angel’s message, traveled in haste to see the Savior and worshiped Him.
3. The Magi – Although they were Gentiles, they followed the star to pay homage to the Savior. After paying respects to the Lord, they went home “by a different route”.
