26 Dec Luke 2:7

7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Have you ever had a bad day and things didn’t go your way? Check our poor Mary and Joseph! Mary just gave birth to the Son of God, and where are they? They are in a stable, laying baby Jesus in a manger…with hay…and animals all around! No one would make room for them at the inn! Next time you have a bad day, instead of losing your temper or becoming negative and grumpy, think about Jesus, the Messiah, in a manger. It wasn’t a bad day; it was God’s plan. Pray that you will be patient when things don’t go your way. Look for God’s hand at work in every situation.
