When Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem, they found no place to stay. There was no room for them at the local inn or in private homes. We can be sure they asked everywhere, looking for someplace warm and safe for themselves and the Little One Who was to be born very soon. All they heard was "No. There is no room here. It is too crowded." The King of the Universe, along with His mother and foster father, had to settle for a humble stable, the home of animals rather than people.
Do we have room in our hearts for Jesus? Or do we crowd Him out with all our concerns and desires? Do we welcome Him in or tell Him that He must go somewhere else?
Be sure to make room for Jesus this Christmas season.
