Then she gave birth to her firstborn Son, and she wrapped Him snugly in cloth and laid Him in a feeding trough — because there was no room for them at the lodging place. (Luke 2:7 HCSB)
A baby has a charm that brings out your heart. They’re helpless but that’s not it. They’re cute but that’s not quite it either. They’re very easily hurt, so they cry very easily and we want to protect them. That, i believe is it. When they are fussy or mad even, we want to hold them in our arms to soothe their feelings. God gave them that charm so we would care for them in a tender way because that’s what a baby needs.
We have a charm to our Heavenly Father. We’re lost, meandering our way through life, some of us wanting to do what’s right, some of us blatantly mean and some at a place in between. However we may be, He’s charmed by us and want’s us to come home with Him. He doesn’t want to lose a one of us. We’re each as precious as a baby to Him. He’s waiting for us to come to His heart and return the love… The love Jesus brought to us on Christmas and poured out the day He broke the bread and shared the wine.
