Making room

Daily reading: Luke 2:1-20
Monday, December 26, 2016

Focus passage: While they were there, the time came for Mary to have her baby.  She gave birth to her firstborn child, a son, wrapped him snugly, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the guesthouse. Luke 2:6-7

The story of Christ coming into our world is a story of making room.  We are called to make room in our lives for God to work on us, to mold us into more faithful disciples.  This room making, makes us more gracious, more loving, more compassionate that we may want to be.  We find that we may even make enough room for the love of God, that we are able let go of the possessions we cling to or even to love our enemies.

Prayer: Incarnate God, may I make room for your presence in my words and actions today.  Amen.
