The lizard you can seize with your hands, yet it is in kings’ palaces. (Proverbs 30:28 AMP)
I wonder if there was a lizard worshiping the Baby with the sheep and cows. When a lizard moved into my Christmas tree here today I just wondered. What most of us are thinking is it’s too common, too undignified, unclean even. But what are we? He died for us while we were sinners. What God would be a true God if He loved us only when we were lovely, good, well-behaved, cleaned up? That would be an idol to placate not our God.
I have been and am unlovely at times. I have tested man and God’s patience. But God has always been warm towards me. There’s always been a place near Him especially for me. Sometimes it takes a few minutes of praying to find that place. There’s a place special for you also. I’m not sure what it takes. Probably saying an honest, maybe tearful, maybe warmhearted “Help.” He loves you before you cry for help. He doesn’t love you less now and once you get cleaned up he won’t love you more. He … Just … Loves … You.
So the Geico Gecko might have been at the manger. It’s a possibility.
