Just last week at Nakumatt Thika Road, the Christmas scene was having the usual very tall tree, lights and all the decorations and trimmings that go with it. The newest addition was the Polar Bears. So when a friend MTO snapped the scene, it became a point of discussion in my house but also on the FB.
Thank God the Nativity Scene brought back into our TRM. Yeah, I know Jesus is not popular in some circles, but hey he is King of Kings. King over Christmas trees and Polar bears.
So am happy that some children will this Christmas ask ” Who is the baby in the manger?” and someone will answer ” Long time ago in Bethlehem…”.
As we pass by to buy ice cream, to gawk at wonderful displays, to eat at the food court or to simply stroll as a family or alone, we must pause at the Nativity Scene and for a brief moment remember that God loved you and me so much that he gave his one and only son…not the lifeless block of baby in the manger but King of Kings and LORD of Lords. Merry Christmas
