December 23rd – No room

No room.

No room for a peasant girl pregnant outside of marriage.

No room for an older man with a young wife.

No room for a child born in the midst of political turmoil.

No room for anything vaguely religious in the midst of the celebration of Christmas?

Or maybe….

Maybe….

Maybe we can chose to make room in our lives for this Child who came to put everything right.

Maybe we can find space amongst the presents and the turkey and the chocolate for a manger, for a King, for a Saviour.

Is there room for this Jesus in your heart?
