Everyone had a home--but Him!

(James Smith, "Daily Bible Readings for the Lord's Household")

Everyone had a home--but Him!

"Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests--but the Son of man has no place to lay His head!" Matthew 8:20

What an astonishing fact!

Here is the Creator of all things--without a home!

Here is the Ruler of the universe--without a habitation!

Here is the eternal, immortal King--more destitute than the birds of the air, or the beasts of the forest!

"Then each one went to his own home--but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives." John 7:53-8:1

Everyone had a home--but Him!

What brought Him into these circumstances?


Love for whom?

Love for sinners, the vilest, the basest of mankind!


Why did He stoop so low?

He became poor--that we might become rich!

He was without a poor cottage on earth--that we might possess a splendid mansion in heaven!

He was destitute in time--that we might possess a glorious portion in eternity!

O Jesus, how astonishing is Your love!

O my soul, admire, adore, and praise--the wondrous love of your beloved Lord!

Family is so wonderful!
We are blessed beyond measure with family, fun and friends!
We need to be so thankful for these memories and for our freedom's. May we never forget, no matter what!
God Bless!

    What a wonderful thing to have family so near! We've never had that blessing, but it makes us all the more thankful for our church family with whom we usually spend holidays.
