December 8 – GIVE JOY – Jesus paid the debt

Read Luke 2:7

“…and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.”

God was sending His own Son to the earth. There is no doubt that most would expect the God of all creation to send his Son as a baby born in the nicest of places. Yet, that was not the choice that God the Father made. Instead He sent his son to be born in a barn and placed in a feeding trough. How humble. How simple. No bright lights or flashing billboards. No media covering the story. God the Father sent his Son Jesus to be born in the most simple of settings.

What can you simplify this season? What can more you do to simplify your life?

Give Joy Idea:

Declutter and take count of items you no longer use. Then give items like clothes or toys to a local charity.
