Would you have chosen a manger?

If you had the opportunity to choose where you were born, what would your choice have been? Where would you have chosen? Jesus, being God had this choice. However, He chose to be born in a manger, not exactly the most convenient place.

We have been studying the book of Mathew in the bible and what I have seen constantly is that God’s view point is totally different from the popular world view. He did not prioritise some of the things that we would normally take to heart. Instead, He focused on fulfilling his mission, which was to obey God the Father at any cost and to redeem mankind from the clutch of Sin.

As the year finishes off, I think we should take time out to prioritise our goals and dreams for next year. However, let’s do it from God’s view point for our lives. As we do so, we can begin to enjoy eternal life from now. Jesus said in John 17:3, “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.”

Have a great month ahead.
