Small is one of the hardest things that many of us will ever do.
Our culture virtually shames us if we don’t think big, work to become known, make a splash, or leave our mark. Some famous personalities have made it their singular goal to become memorable, talked about, and present on the lips of everyone in a household.
But Jesus modeled another way to greatness.
The Peace of God was poured into the world through an infant; peace often comes in small packages. At Christmas, we celebrate that humility can bring peace – even when facing mighty enemies – where power, might, and stature cannot. The Christmas story is the story of the humble King, who made Himself nothing, becoming the Peacemaker for us all.
