“… wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in the dog bowl.”
What?! Oh wait. That’s not it. It was the cattle feeder. Hay trough aka manger. Ah yes. Now it makes sense.
Where is the sense in that?
DearOne, just suppose … Perhaps Father God chose that cattle feeder as a symbol, a reminder- to show that only Christ will fill your hunger… my hunger … the hunger of all mankind.
Just maybe. Hmmm.
Lots of friends are hurting right now… Deaths in their families, illnesses, broken hearts.
Hunger only our Christ can fill.
Pray for it. Get still. Get quiet. Set your trouble out on your lap Sweetone, and let Father God begin to refill that hurting wound.
‘And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.’ (Luke 2:7 ESV)
