The Christ of Christmas.

As I meditate on the example of Christ—lowering Himself to be born in a manger, to wash the feet of His disciples, and to die in the most shameful way before the very people He came to save—I get why God repeats in Proverbs, James, and I Peter that God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. May we be a humble people—not with simple politeness and sham diplomacy that masquerades as authentic humility—but people who are genuine servants esteeming others better than ourselves, letting go of our rights for the good of the cause of Christ. May we be like Jesus. Merry Christmas.
