Lessons in Humility from the Christ Child

Lessons in Humility from the Christ Child December 14, 2016

By Evan Koons

As Christmas approaches, let us remember and rejoice. The Savior has been born!

Strangers and friends, pay attention and live out the Christ-Child Memory. Curious about what that means? Hint: it doesn’t mean swapping your mattress for hay. Check it.

We have to be present. We have to show up. We have to dwell in the darkness and come to know it. Jesus was present in the world, and usually silent, before he was anything else.

This Christmas, remember God’s faithfulness in the hope of the Christ child, but with that, live out the Christ child memory in the world around you: vulnerability, humility, presence.
